The recuperation of public space : a closer look at Bogotá, Colombia

Abstract : In order to observe the transformation of Bogotá, we carried out interdisciplinary research that aimed to understand the complexity of the city’s development and its implications for urban phenomena at different scales. We focused on two main aspects: first, the large-scale (or global) factors that made the changes possible, and second, the impact of paradigmatic projects on particular parts of the city. Concerning the large-scale, we analyzed the most important sociopolitical issues behind the transformation process. Turning to the local, we observed the impact of urban interventions in three particular zones of the city that were the subject of important physical transformations.
