 Notes
Abstract: The Río Tunjuelo in Bogotá, Colombia is one of the most contaminated rivers in the country. A combination of sedimentation from mining added to urban runoff and industrial toxic pollution have seriously degraded the quality of this river. This project is concerned primarily with the restoration of the river and its reconnection to the surrounding city. The project looks at the urban portion of the river basin across three different scales: 1.) the regional and metropolitan scale; 2.) neighborhoods and communities; and 3.) at the street and pedestrian scale. Through comprehensive analysis, issues and opportunities at each scale were explored and create the foundation for specific strategies aimed at retrofitting green and blue infrastructure within the city. New strategies for the river are presented at each of the three scales: 1.) the creation of an urban greenway along the river corridor that connects with the larger fabric of the city’ 2.) the creation of new links that connect communities to the river; and 3.) retrofitting green and blue infrastructure at the street level. The overarching vision is the creation of a network of streets, parks, and public spaces that work in harmony with the River Tunjuelo.
