Roberto Uribe-Castro

Architect, Artist

Roberto Uribe received the architecture degree from the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá and his Masters in Fine Arts from the Weißensee School of Arts in Berlin. As a freelance architect he has done research work on Bogotá and the Sabana and he has been an external consultant for the first POT of Bogotá. As a designer he has worked in private residences in Amsterdam and Berlin. From Architecture Uribe-Castro was linked to large scale artistic projects working in research, production and assembly for Doris Salcedo and Mona Hatoum in various projects. The Master of Space Strategies in Berlin marks the beginning of his individual practice as an artist. His interest in the city, architecture and space as historical documents and archaeological sites leads him to take as a starting point either a specific site or an archetypal architectural space, seeking to establish a dialogue between architecture, politics and history through alterations or changes to existing elements. On other occasions Uribe works from urban elements such as billboards in ephemeral public installations that question lesser known histories of the chosen site. Roberto has been awarded the Berlin Senate research grant, finalist in several public space art competitions in Germany and Ireland, shortlisted for the EU competition Beyond Memorialisation. Uribe is co-founder and member of CC_Berlin NGO that works with communities in the development of projects to improve living conditions and decrease the vulnerability of rural communities in Mexico and Colombia.
