A VELODROME IS AN INFRASTRUCTURE OF LIMITED USE, WHICH NONETHELESS REQUIRES AN ENORMOUS TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC EFFORT. PUBLIC SPACES IN MEDELLÍN ARE CHARACTERIZED BY AN INTENSITY OF USE, OFTEN ATTAINED WITH LIMITED INVESTMENT. THIS PROJECT TRANSFORMS THE TYPOLOGY OF THE SPORT FACILITY IN ORDER TO INTEGRATE IT INTO THE EXISTING PARK, INTENSIFYING THE PUBLIC NATURE OF THIS SPACE AND DISTRIBUTING THE TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC INVESTMENT ALONG IT.

The world is full of architecture, more or less interesting; we do not wish to add any more. The last four hundred years of architectural excess produced enough undiscovered public architectural knowledge to nurture, at least, our practice; the last twenty, a hangover of creative-shapes-on-steroids we are trying to recover from. F**k originality. Rather, copies allow us to explore all the potential left unexplored by other’s rush. Knowledge can be public, yet undiscovered, if independently created fragments are logically related but never retrieved, brought together, or re-conceptualized. And that is what we do. Don’t ask us for new stuff, we copy.
