Barcelona- Bogotá (4)

Agora Bogotá (Daniel Bermudez+ Herreros Arquitectos )

With a FAR below 2 (the average in the area, altought with different building types), the Agora center will be a conventions facility by carrera 40 and the Corporación de Ferias in south Bogota. The project can be seen on http://www.herrerosarquitectos.com/Ind_Proyectos.html . The project will transform an industrial site on the edge between industrial and housing areas.

The Forum 2004 in Barcelona has a large concentration of towers, marking its landscape; yet the FAR in the tower area (under 3) is not as high as behind the towers, on the much lower Diagonal Mar mall, which gets to 5 as a mall is a much more compact building.
