Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments

Colombian architect Rogelio Salmona has translated pragmatic and poetic concepts and intentions into physical form. These result from the architect’s deep communion with and understanding of the materials and processes, as well as of the historic-cultural context in which his architectural intervention takes place.

Traditional materials such as brick and stone, or unexpected materials such as water and wind are combined to interact with and heighten in a wonderful manner, the surroundings; the immediate, defined by the architecture, as well as the distant, consisting of the landscape. Salmona has managed to recreate, through this rigorous architectonic practice, a world of buildings and architectural complexes of great presence and robustness that speak of a particular reality always related to the sense of the place.

Salmona’s oeuvre, including such notable examples as the Torres del Parque (1967) in Bogotá, the Presidential House for Illustrious Guests (1981) in Cartagena, the Quimbaya Museum (1983) in Armenia and the National Archive of the Nation (1992) in Bogotá, is without doubt one of the most prolific and significant of those produced on this continent during the second half of this century. This book, a tribute to, rather than an exhaustive study of the architect’s work, consists of a personal and selective interpretation at the iconographic and textual level, in particular of the work which post-dated the Torres del Parque.


Colombian architect Rogelio Salmona’s buildings have become urban monuments and reference points for a whole generation of architects. Offering photos of a full range of his works, this account of Salmona’s ideas explains his considerations of public use and cultural expressiveness.
