When the time came to reopen Bogotá after Colombia’s 165-day lockdown, the municipal government sought new strategies to help the city’s markets rebuild their vibrancy. Under social distancing requirements, only six tables would be possible in each market’s limited outdoor space. The solution: expand upward. Temporary vertical scaffolding introduces tiers of seating to safely accommodate more diners. An early execution at La Perseverancia Market was soon followed by a second at La Concordia Market Square, which wraps woven hemp around the scaffolding to better reflect the local design language, and also introduces a top viewing deck that visitors can enjoy without purchasing food.
