Antioquia's Educational Parks: 13 Examples of Learning-Centered Infrastructure in Colombia

Antioquia's Educational Parks: 13 Examples of Learning-Centered Infrastructure in Colombia

Educational architecture is crucial for creating spaces that, not only nurture and mold the minds of the future generations, but also provide spaces for the wider public to come and share knowledge and ideas. 

In the Department of Antioquia, world famous for the innovative city of Medellín, the project Parques Educacionales, or Educational Parks, aims to provide spaces throughout the municipalities for teachers, students, and the public to engage in activities centered on science and technology. Along with giving communities the spaces and tools necessary to promote education and culture, the parks demonstrate the role of architecture in creating environments dedicated to learning. In this article, we highlight 13 of the parks and their impact on the communities they serve.
