Arquitectura Expandida

Arquitectura Expandida (AXP) is a design collective based in Bogota, Colombia – a citizen-led laboratory that builds structures -physical, social and cultural-  that invite communities to self-organise and take responsibility towards their own territory.  AXP allies itself with local community leaders and organisations, but avoids a central role, providing only the design and construction expertise for the execution of the projects. The collective’s design philosophy also relies heavily on an embrace of sustainable, affordable and reclaimed materials.
