Overview


Majestic at 2,600 metres above sea level, Bogotá shows its best face from the air. The book provides a different perspective to admire the best facet of one of the largest cities in South America and to enjoy it with the dignity that only height can provide. From north to south and from east to west, "Bogotá from the Air" is a due homage to the city that is capable of bringing as many emotions as people together. The book is the testimony of an evolutionary model that has turned the city, over the past forty years, into an urban centre in constant growth, improvement and expansion. However, the city's evolution has managed to maintain the individual, the citizen, at the heart of this process. Far from turning the city into a huge stone mass of asphalt and buildings, its development renews it and floods it with vitality, considering the fact that it breathes, feeds and lives. The traditional barrios, parks, historical and cultural centres dress up Bogotá in its most splendorous gown to show it from a perspective that its early settlers could have never imagined 500 years ago.
