Architecture at the helm of economic recovery in Bogotá’s traditional markets: The case of La Concordia Amphitheater

Following the positive response from the first economic reactivation prototype built for La Perseverancia; the traditional market of La Concordia, located at the historic city center of Bogotá was also interested in being part of the design-build initiative led by the Colombian Society of Architects (SCA).

This opportunity presented a different type of challenge, the outdoor space available was not as scarce and there was also room for diverse programmatic activities. The SCA assembled a team of professionals under the direction of TALLER’s partner Julian Restrepo, who coordinated the design-build efforts after having engaged and involved the community in the process.

The end result is a scaffolding structure with three different layers: retail spaces at ground level, elevated dining platforms and a public rooftop with a dedicated staircase. The U-shaped structure also serves as an amphitheater for cultural events and gatherings. The structure towers over the city center as a symbol of economic reactivation and recovery of the market.

The architectural design was a collaboration between architects Henry Gualdrón, Alejandro Saldarriaga and German Bahamón (Colab-19). The construction was made possible thanks to a number of sponsors, donors and patrons.
