Co-Creations Lab EDU, 2nd Place

I had the honor of participating in an architectural competition hosted by the Empresa Urbana de Medellín, where I led a team of architects and designers in developing a concept for a new ideas laboratory space within the company. Our efforts were rewarded, and we were thrilled to win second place in the competition. Throughout the design process, we employed the BIM methodology to maximize our productivity and ensure precision in our plans. We utilized various technologies and software, such as AutoCAD and 3D modeling, to create an imaginative and innovative design. Participating in the event provided invaluable experience, and the lessons we learned have helped us improve our approach in subsequent projects.
