Colombia: Transformed/Architecture=Politics traces 11 recently built, socially conscious projects by six leading voices in contemporary Colombian architecture: Daniel Bonilla and Giancarlo Mazzanti from Bogotá; Felipe Mesa, Juan Manuel Pelaez and Felipe Uribe from Medellín; and Orlando Garcia from Medellín/New York City.

These visionary works reflect significant social shifts that are taking place in Latin America today. They demonstrate ideas of social inclusion, as well as innovative architectural forms and spaces, which have been steadily transforming Colombian cities and the nation. The projects are explored through photographs, slides, drawings, models and film footage. 

The exhibition was developed by curator Vladimir Belogolovsky, founder of Intercontinental Curatorial Project in New York and Fernando Villa, AIA the international representative of the Colombian Society of Architects in New York City presenting leading Colombian Architects at New York Center for Architecture, as well as leading international architects at the Colombian Biennials of Architecture.
