Environmental sustainability, circular design, and cultural knowledge in the modelling of a hydraulic wall in Ambalema, Tolima, Colombia

Resumen

Based on an experience of on-site construction of a hydraulic wall of recycled used tires in front of the Magdalena River, in Ambalema (Tolima, Colombia), the challenge of designing a new wall on the banks of the Historic Centre is proposed, based on three basic criteria: the study of pre-Hispanic hydraulic infrastructures in South America, especially in the indigenous heritage of Colombia; the search for greater efficiency and improved application possibilities in the recycling of used tires; and environmental integration with the tropical dry forest.

Faced with the challenge of a sustainable design, in the natural context of the ecological structure of the Magdalena River border, an alternative model of the wall is proposed as a response to the institutional project of the local government of a boardwalk, calling attention to the linking of interdisciplinary visions, community, and environmental representations, to contribute to consider sustainable solutions such as the one proposed in this article.
