8,500 m² Urban Wetland in Bogota Fed With Recycled Rainwater
Obraestudio’s winning design draws its inspiration from the wetlands of the savannah surrounding the city. Native wetland plants as well as species from the rocky surrounding slopes have been selected to create an environmentally appropriate landscape with a strong sense of place. The wetland itself will be fed with recycled rainwater.
The green rooftops of adjacent buildings have been taken into account so that the new outdoor space will blend well with existing green elements, while an old elevator and stair construction will be revamped to integrate architecture with landscape and to act as a sculptural feature.
