Associate Professor Manuel Delgado is selected as a finalist in an international competition in Caracas, Venezuela.
A team of architects from Colombia and Venezuela was selected among the three finalists to develop ideas for a second round in the competition for the transformation of La Carlota Airport into a green park in Caracas. The team was led by Wentworth's associate professor Manuel Delgado along with Jorge Pérez Jaramillo and the firm OPUS-Oficina de Proyectos Urbanos of Medellín, Colombia. The competition included 69 international entries.
The team's proposal takes advantage of the old airport to restore the natural elements that structured the valley, taking into consideration the ecosystem and biodiversity through the rivers that flow from the Avila Mountain and the original condition of the Guaire River, creating floodplains that can be used for recreational and educational activities. The project offers the opportunity to re-connect the city physically and socially, in a moment of democratic changes in Venezuela, proposing a great space for the encounter of all the inhabitants of a city that has been divided for such a long time.
