Urban Actions and Emerging Architecture: Community Architecture Encounter

CCA Lecture at the Sociedad Colombiana de Arquitectos – Bogota


Taking into account CCA’s experience in the development of social projects that valued community knowledge in the construction of urban settlements, we were invited to participate in the encounter of architecture and urban collectives ‘Urban Actions and Emerging Architecture’, that took place in Bogota in October 2019.

The event was organized by the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University, the University of Illinois, Urbz Colombia, and C-Innova, with the support of the Colombian Society of Architects and the Piloto University of Colombia. 

It pursued the creation of a space where communities, students, collectives, academics and professionals could exchange experiences, methodologies, and practices in the development of community projects. It became a platform to disseminate knowledge, generate reflections, and make visible the impact that diverse interventions had on communities in order to generate support networks in the development of future social projects.
