We are a laboratory of  architecture dedicated to designing spaces for post-pandemic situations.



Founded in the middle of 2020 the pandemic, colab-19  questions the model of contemporary architectural practice, traditional building methods and the ways in which we inhabit our cities.





-Having never physically met, we work remotely from Bogotá and London. 

-We prioritize ephemerality sustainability and economics in our design process to define a post pandemic architecture. 

-We push for collaborations between the private/public sectors and academia to develop innovative designs.
