Universidad Libre Campus

  • LOCATION: Bogota, Colombia
  • STATUS: Concept Design
  • PROJECT TEAM: Carlos Arnaiz, Laura del Pino

Universidad Libre in Bogota, Colombia, one of the country’s oldest private universities, tasked CAZA with aiming to triple the school’s architectural footprint throughout the city, integrating this sprawling urban campus into the built landscape of downtown Bogota. Made up of several campuses, CAZA’s plan aimed to strategically incorporate pockets of green space throughout the campus by organizing the newly designed buildings along an X-shaped axis of grass and trees. Along this “X”, CAZA plotted a variety of new facilities, including labs and administrative buildings, then clustered the university’s key existing structures, including a 14,250 square meter sports stadium, existing laboratories, a sports club, and a building with classrooms.
