      Bogotá: Lecciones de un Renacer
      October 3-4, 2008

      It is with great pleasure that the Departments of Architecture and City
      and Regional Planning at the University of California, Berkeley, invite
      you to attend "Bogotá: Lecciones de un Renacer." This two-day symposium
      focuses on the urban and social transformations of Bogotá, Colombia, and
      showcases the exhibit, ?Bogotá, el Renacer de una Ciudad? from the 2006
      Venice Architecture Biennale, which helped garner the Leon d?Oro in
      recognition of Bogotá?s recent renaissance. The symposium takes place
      October 3?4, 2008, and is centered around a keynote address by former
      mayor of Bogotá, Enrique Peñalosa.

      Other guest speakers include architect Daniel Bermúdez (who will give a
      lunchtime lecture on Friday, October 3); Her Excellency Carolina Barco,
      Colombian ambassador to the United States; planner Camilo Santamaría;
      former director of the Colombian Studies Program at Georgetown University
      and urban consultant to the cities of Bogotá and Medellín Gerard Martin;
      University of Southern California Visiting Assistant Professor of
      Architecture Rachel Berney; and UC Berkeley faculty members.

      The symposium is co-sponsored by the Institute of Urban and Regional
      Development; the Program in the Design of Urban Places (Master of Urban
      Design degree program); the Center for Latin American Studies; the
      Berkeley-Stanford CityGroup; The University of California Transportation
      Center; and the Center for Global Metropolitan Studies.
