Salmona is considered in many respects a symbol for South American architecture, whose genius is best expressed in the works and projects he developed in the city of Bogotá, Colombia. Introduced by an interview with the architect, A+U documents 14 projects created over the entire span of his career, ranging from urban developments and apartment buildings, to public buildings and private houses. All are generously photographed and accompanied by plans and elevations.
