OMA to masterplan civic city for Colombia

gfg

Dutch architecture studio OMA has won an international competition to masterplan a mixed-use development in Colombia’s capital, Bogota.

The firm’s New York office was chosen to develop the proposal for the regeneration of Bogota’s city centre, planned to house the Colombia government headquarters as well as residential, cultural, retail and educational facilities.

Proposed for the midpoint of an arterial road that bisects the city, the masterplan features an arcing public space that connects the road to an adjacent park and university.

The development is equivalent in size to the National Mall in Washington DC and is set to become the largest institutional masterplan completed in Latin America since Oscar Niemeyer’s Brasilia built in the 60s.
