Cortesía de Equipo Tercer Lugar

En noviembre pasado, la Sociedad Colombiana de Arquitectos (SCA) invitó a participar en el Concurso Público de Anteproyecto para el diseño de colegios y un equipamiento cultural en Bogotá, proyecto a desarrollar por las secretarías del Distrito Capital colombiano, y el Jurado ya falló, galardonando a los cuatro mejores proyectos.

Email and text messages may have replaced snail mail, but there are some things that you just can’t send electronically. While the Internet may have killed the handwritten letter, all those online stores have only boosted demand for parcel delivery services. In the interest of saving money and building a greener image, delivery companies have adopted some unique policies. For instance: UPS trucks never turn left!
