DRURY UNIVERSITY and the HAMMONS SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE are proud to present this
important exhibition of recent community-oriented work from Colombia. Drury joins institutions in
Chicago, Miami, Moscow, New York, and Houston in hosting Colombia: Transformed / Architecture =
Politics, which traces ten recently built socially-conscious projects by five leading voices in contemporary
Colombian architecture: Daniel Bonilla and Giancarlo Mazzanti from Bogotá, and Felipe Mesa, Juan
Manuel Pelaez, and Felipe Uribe from Medellín. 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, and film footage to celebrate how these
buildings are appropriated by the public.
Colombia: Transformed / Architecture = Politics is produced by New York-
based INTERCONTINENTAL CURATORIAL PROJECT, which promotes the role of architecture as the
vital part of contemporary culture and life. The Project collaborates with museums, universities,
publishers, architects, and curators on organizing, curating, and designing exhibitions worldwide.
