GO WITH THE FLOW METROPOLITAN LINEAR PARK February 2012 Bogota / Colombia Go with the flow is a project that promotes the construction of a linear park in Bogotaâ€™s westside, that allows the integration of the most important wetlands in the city, protecting and improving the conditions of their biodiversity. Similarly, the project seeks to create a greater connectivity, reducing the congregation of activities from east to west, encouraging a wide spectrum of activities that generate a long-term financial investment that will reactivate the area in the future. The proposal will create a new green axis that implements a new way of living, complemented with cultural facilities that are articulated to the urban transport network, thus achieving a better integration with the rest of the city.

The intersections of the linear park with high capacity avenues are going to be promoted as points of activity concentration and user interaction. Public centres of arts, recreation and sports are proposed as spaces that the entire community can use and profit from.
the proposal The Linear Park project is based on three principal strategies: allows the connectivity between both parts of the city, creates the integration of wetlands and their biodiversity and encourages a wide spectrum of activities that will reactivate the area. 06
SUSTAINABLE WINDOW WESTERN URBAN LIBRARY May 2012 Bogota / Colombia The Urban Library project represents the end of the western Linear Park, which opens towards the Conejera wetland. The shape of the building understands the perspectives of the area, by creating a large frame that oversees the wetland and continues with the ecological axis that stems from the park. The ramps that emerge from the ground, allow the flow continuity and provides new pathways in the sector. The formal strategies in the project respond to the social dynamics of the area, promoting integration and connection therewith. On the other hand, the building responds positively in environmental, social and economic aspects, which are integrated amongst each other through different strategies. Being a cultural facility, allows the development of different types of collective activities, potentiating the area for further long.term investments.

A new congregation center is created in the area, where people can easily access and wherein different types of optional and social activities can be performed to foster the collective development for the locals. 13
The rainwater collected through ramps and gutters on the square is conducted to a collection tank underground, where a pump returned it overagain to the wetland.
Some of the same species found in the Conejera wetland were planted in the project, creating an extension of their own habitat. SIETECUEROS
Satisfying the needs of the present without compromising those of the future
The roof plan shows the entire public space in the project, including the soft soil zones which collect water and distribute it through the gutters throughout the main square.
The area in which the library is located has abundant vegetation, because of its proximity to the Conejera wetland. The sections reflect how the project integrates itself to the different ecosystems in the area.
This plan shows the relationships and the spatial distribution at the projectâ€™s ground floor, where you can see a large space that works for the community living in the area.
URBAN RENOVATION INDUSTRIAL ZONE PLAN November 2011 Bogota / Colombia Bogotaâ€™s industrial area has been urbanized since 1944, where it began to host a multitude of small manufacturing companies and today is known for being the center of the industrial activity in the city. Currently, the sector is not in very good conditions but due to its location and its importance within the capital city makes it optimal for the development of entrepreneural activities and facilities. For this reason a renovation plan was proposed, which aims to carry out an urban project developed at different scales, which understands the real problems of a particular zone, assessing the pre-existing constructions and socioeconomic groups therein. A proposal where collective thinking articulated with the private and public spaces, which improves community life is the main goal.
The polygonâ€™s new tissue has a better connectivity with the city's urban network
Different types of activities are articulated through green corridors, integrating the structures inside the polygon
Central axis that articulates the entire project and is complemented by various cores of public space
The project acts as a central core that connects to the other proposals in the renovation plan, where multifamily housing lie on a large platform that generates commercial pathways containing both stores and complementary facilities, thus reactivating the area.
The proposal is one of the most important urban pieces in the renovation plan, since it continues with the main axis and integrates the different elements throughout the central park.
The second floor plan evidences the relationships established in the project in terms of private space, which belongs to housing; collective spaces refer to the platform and the public spaces that are represented by the central park.
ECO GALLERY SUSTAINABLE STREET FURNITURE February 2012 Bogota / Colombia The eco gallery is based on the concept of sustainable street furniture, which can be used for different types of activities, able to change and transform over time. The proposal consists of a tensioning system that allows on one hand to expose numerous kinds of works and on the other, generates a great bench to observe what is presented. In addition, the slope creates a green wall for recycling rain water, allowing the growth of different types of vegetation, making it pleasant to the public and environmentally friendly.

Create an unobstructed space where people can walk through the exhibition without any interruption; reason why the roof is supported by a tensile structure
Green wall to help retain some of the rain water
The project created a bench where people, besides observing the exhibition, can also sit and perform other activities.
