Mediating the Borders

Minimum intervention, maximum influence

The project is an intervention exercise aiming for the minimum scale of intervention and the maximum influence for the urban experience. Starting with a series of documentation on two locations in Bogota, both deal with intersection areas of different stratas. The documentation includes different information layers of the built environment, the artificial urban furniture, and the activities that happen around the area. After the site documentation, an evaluation of the locations led to identifying different characters of specific areas, and a series of intervention strategies were designed to respond to the special characters of each area.
