CAZA developed a Master Plan for the expansion of Bogota’s largest exhibition hall, Corferias, with an aim at increasing accessibility and transforming this crucial civic area into Bogota’s next lifestyle district. As part of the center’s Master Plan, measuring in 900,000 square feet, CAZA designed a 200-room hotel so that convention center visitors and exhibitors have onsite lodging. CAZA also designed a 15-story office building for the Water Company Acueducto with a series of hanging gardens and balconies that overlooks Avenida de las Americas and Corferias. As a way of improving the District’s connectivity, CAZA designed all the buildings as connective structures, with bridges and walkways that link the center’s various buildings to one another as well as to surrounding public transportation hubs.
