Redeveloping Shopping Arcades To Ignite Urban Recovery [My Ideal City]
Architect Winka Dubbeldam envisions reworking downtown Bogota into a mixed-use city-wide destination.
A proposal by architect Winka Dubbeldam and her team at Archi-Tectonics repositions a portion of downtown Bogota as a mixed-use city-wide destination. La Candelaria is a historic neighborhood in downtown Bogota that concentrates most of the cultural activity in the city with nearly 500 institutions or artistic groups, museums and Research and Education Centers.
In this neighborhood, you can find several old historic buildings, shopping passages, or interior arcades containing small crafts shops, tailor shops and restaurants. This sets up a micro environment and semi-public or private world inside the urban blocks.
