Biodynamic Park: Care of the Ecosystem

Peláez Arquitectura de Espacios

Antioquia is a department in northwestern Colombia, which lies mostly in the Andes mountain range and extends into the Caribbean Sea. Medellín is its capital.

The Parque Biodinámico [Biodynamic Park], located there, is a project designed to accompany the activities of the Quebradona copper mine and to counteract the environmental impact generated by the mining activities. The first stage will be construction, between the first and fourth year of the project. The second stage will correspond to the mine’s operating time, which will be from years 5 to 21. The third stage will be after the closing of mining operations, between years 22 and 38.

The main requirement made by the client is the care of the ecosystem throughout the mine’s operation cycle and even after its closure. The mine is projected to operate for 27 years, during which time the different stages of the construction of the park, understood as a living and developing organism, will be implemented. In its final stage, the objective is the complete reuse of the extraction area to reintegrate it into the landscape.
