Paisajes Emergentes · Luis Callejas – LCLA office
LCLA office is positioned at the intersection of architecture, landscape and urbanism, oriented toward new forms of engagement with the public realm through territorial operations.
LCLA was founded in 2011 by architect Luis Callejas after the dissolution of Paisajes Emergentes.
Having obtained diverse recognition in multiple public space design competitions, Luis Callejas was awarded with the Architectural League of New York Prize for Young Architects in 2013 and selected as one of the world’s ten best young practices by the Iakov Chernikhov International Foundation in 2010.
In 2010 Luis Callejas’ Paisajes Emergentes completed the aquatic centre for the XI South American games, a 20 000 square meter open air complex of swimming pools and public space in Medellin, Colombia. In 2011 they also completed the renovation of “El Campin”, the main soccer stadium in Colombia for the 2012 sub20 world cup. Both projects were commissioned through open international competitions.
Since 2008 Luis Callejas has received diverse recognitions in twenty design competitions.
Callejas is the author of Pamphlet Architecture 33 (Princeton Architectural Press, NY). The competition for PA33 asked previous authors in the series to nominate the architects and theorists whose work represents the most exciting design and research in the field today.
Luis Callejas is a faculty member at Harvard University Graduate School of Design since 2011, where he is engaged in graduate level design instruction as part of the Architecture and Landscape Architecture departments.
