Forest of Hope

This interesting project is designed by the Columbian architect Giancarlo Mazzanti, and is situated in the slums of Altos de Cazuca, Colombia. The design serves as a sports center and stimulates the interaction and the integration into a functioning community. The aim of the project is to continue to grow and expand gradually.

‘We believe that architecture’s value lies, not only in it, but in what it produces. We are interested in producing actions, change and relationships; this will allow us to develop shapes, patterns or open organizations that act in the construction of social actions. Forest of Hope is what we call an open project, that is a project made out of modules, able to grow, and able to adapt to different situations. It consists on a canopy that is able to grow and change depending on the circumstances.’
