Medellín Laboratory is an event created to highlight the impact of urban interventions on the lives of inhabitants through meetings, visits and city tours. In this sense, the city becomes a “living laboratory of experiences” in which visitors from other countries witness the reality of Medellín. They have the opportunity to verify the characteristics of urban spaces and the way these physical and social interventions have transformed the reality of people.
An important aspect of the “Medellín Laboratory” or “Medellín Lab” is the direct contact of participants with local people; they can ask questions and evaluate if these works actually account for a change of life for the people of Medellín.
As a result of this “living laboratory” experience, leaders and representatives of international governments will reply the acquired knowledge in other cities around the world.
