Architecture in Venezuela

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Venezuelan Buildings. We aim to include buildings that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed Venezuelan buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Venezuela. The focus is on contemporary buildings but information on key traditional architecture in Venezuela is also welcome.

Vertical City – 16 Aug 2010
A megastructure with a socio economic imperative, a peoples’ tower The social imperative – without ownership the disenfranchised poor cannot hope to bequeath a viable inherited financial future to the next generation, their children. In order that they are able to have a capital stake in the exiting societal construct they must have ownership of the land on which they live, to this end the tower acts as a catalyst for the creation of ownership.

In whichever configuration, the tower is a metaphor for true urban living, having all the elements of work, leisure, home and a sense of place in one entity, Access to and from the tower takes many forms, cable car, helicopter, water taxi car or metro.
