Expansion of Fucha

Our project deploys a rezoning strategy to reclaim, revive, and revalue waterbodies in Sabana Plain of Bogota to create a robust and stable urban ecology at the waterfront. It creates financial opportunities, treats wastewater, and restores wetland ecology. People can only appreciate the value of these water bodies if they are aware of the importance of clean and safe water.

We therefore design the Fucha River as a new self-purifying water-holding system, connecting existing low grounds and remnant wetlands with the river. In the process, we bring value to the waterfront, break the barriers created by the current river’s concrete channel, increase job opportunities, and densify housing in Bogota city.
