This course is based on Sebastián Mejia and Luis Callejas’ presentation at Natural Artifice, the 2011 National Architecture Conference.
Callejas and Mejia are co-directors of Paisajes Emergentes (Emerging Landscapes), a young cross-disciplinary landscape and architecture studio based in Medellin, Colombia. Paisajes Emergentes has come to the fore through rediscovering Romanticism within the technological constraints of virtual architecture. Yet the practice does not attempt to fool the eye with realistic images, instead depicting eerie environments in which the mood is set by ephemeral conditions of light, shadow, reflection and condensation. These images counter the culture of architectural speculation by communicating a vision for the authentic development of place.
‘We are not interested in poetic, pictorial or nostalgic relationships with locations,’ Callejas has said. ‘We look for their emerging qualities to make visible what lies unseen to the public.’

Sebastián Mejia and Luis Callejas: Co-directors of Paisajes Emergentes.
Sebastián Mejia and Luis Callejas are co-directors of Paisajes Emergentes (Emerging Landscapes), a young cross-disciplinary landscape and architecture studio based in Medellin, Colombia.
This interplay between architecture and landscape is reflected in projects which blur the lines between buildings and their environments, and which incorporate ecological processes, power generation and temporal change. Nearing completion, the studio’s competition-winning proposal for the aquatic complex at the 2010 Medellin Pan-American Games intermingles pools for races and recreation with a living wetland ecosystem.
