Next week our students and co-directors are taking off to Medellín, Colombia, site of this year’s field trip and one of this year’s highlights. Together with students of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia and the Graduate School of Planning and Architecture of the University of Columbia in NY , students will participate in the workshop Rethinking the Urban Fringes in Medellín, Colombia: Alternative intervention models.
The workshop will kick off on the 18th of March with an open presentation by all the workshop participants, including our co-directors Carmen Mendoza, who will be talking about neighborhood regeneration and citizen participation in Catalunya and Sandra Bestraten, who will draw a parallel between two cases of environmental restoration in Medellín and Barcelona. Clara Irazábal, professor of the Universidad de Colombia and also a member of our faculty, will also give a talk, in addition to our students who will share their proposals and conclusions of the Ciutat Merdiana workshop.
