Cubierta Cazucá

El equipo de Mazzanti

A simple story for a successful public intervention in the slums of Bogotá.

This video by Juan Carlos Lorza outlines how even the most restrained urban intervention might have a high potential in terms of requalification of the public space.

While approaching the area of intervention, the film records the daily routines around the "Cubierta Cazucá" designed by Giancarlo Mazzanti Arquitectos in the slums of Bogotá (Colombia), a 700 square meter canopy that transforms the development project for a basketball court into an important aggregation point for the city.
