Antonio Ledezma, Metropolitan Mayor of Caracas, supported by local municipalities, professional, community and academic organizations, announced on November 28, the winner of a two-round competition of ideas to transform La Carlota Airport into a park located in central Caracas. The proposal responds to an old claim from the neighbors, environmental organizations, professional and academic associations and inhabitants of a city that, despite its beautiful natural resources, counts only with one square meter of park for inhabitant, when the optimum situation should be 10 Sq. Meters/Inhabitant.
Last November 28, The Metropolitan Municipality of Caracas announced the winner of the international design competition. A team consisting of Manuel Delgado (Venezuela), Jorge Pérez Jaramillo (Colombia) and OPUS-Oficina de Proyectos Urbanos (Colombia) was selected among the three finalists of the competition of ideas to transform La Carlota Airport into a “Metropolitan Green Park” in Caracas, Venezuela.
