AGENdA with Camilo Echavarría and Camilo Echeverri

Medellin, Colombia

AGENdA agencia de arquitectura is located in Medellin, Colombia. AGENdA searches for possible architectures, no matter the scale or location. AGENdA articulates dialogues, projects, and questions regarding architecture disciplinary issues and architecture practice from a condition of crossroad between tropic conditions, history, and disciplinary matters—with special attention to uncertain conditions—as a response to specific realities and context.

AGENdA was founded by Camilo Restrepo Ochoa in 2010. Camilo Restrepo Ochoa is a graduate of Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana in Medellin. He has been a guest lecturer at Harvard Graduate School of Design since 2014. Camilo was nominated for the 2014 MCHAP prize, the 2014 BSi Prize, and was one of the three finalists for the 2012 Rolex Protégé.

Camilo Echavarría (Medellín, 1970), approaches landscape as a cultural thus subjective entity focusing on the presence of man either as an observer, an inhabitant or an agent of transformation. His practice involves photography and photo-based video work and diffuses visual and conceptual frontiers between both mediums. His ongoing project, Atlas of the Andes comprises works made along the northern Andes mountain chain in Colombia, Ecuador and Perú during the last eight years.

Camilo holds a Bachelor's degree in Science from Southern New Hampshire University and a Masters degree in Art History from Universidad de Antioquia. His work has been part of group shows in Bogotá, Lima, Houston, San Salvador and Medellín and is part of Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (New York), Colección Jan Mulder (Lima), Colección Banco BBVA (Bogotá), and Museo de Antioquia (Medellín) among other collections.
