Articulated Life Units (Unidades de Vida Articulada)

Articulated Life Units (Unidades de Vida Articulada – UVA) are a new urban typology whose purpose is to create a space for citizenship training with shared uses including sport, culture and participation. These spaces are intended for the exchange of information between citizens and are places where neighborhood communities can meet through various youth, family and community activities. These new facilities are based in parks and increase public space for people to enjoy. With an investment of $150 billion by the Mayor of Medellin, a total of 20 Articulated Life Units are slated to be built.
