Lecture title: Medellin river as botanic park. ​

Sebastian Monsalve is an architect and landscape architect founding partner of Latitud. 
Sebastian will present the project that was selected to transform the river in Medellin, Colombia.
The project seeks to bury the roads of the river corridor in some sectors of the city, in order to get the inhabitants to recover the possibility of approaching the river, which they have not looked at for more than 60 years, seeking to create quality public spaces that promote the citizen encounter in sectors that have been depressed by the development of road infrastructure. River Parks is the opportunity to create a hybrid project between infrastructure and nature, which will restore the quality of habitability to these abandoned spaces on the banks of the river. An urban development project for the implementation of public space and reconstitution of landscape with the most important water system of the city.
The project proposes to promote the ecological system of the city existing in the river’s biotic corridor, due to the implementation of associations of native species on these new public spaces, allowing to enrich the flora and fauna of the city. Nature is then integrated into the road infrastructure, creating a botanical park that articulates the city’s natural systems in an environmental circuit within the Aburrá Valley.
