Why? A team of architects and urban planners, social workers and citizens has transformed Medellín, Colombia, from the most violent city in the world into a community whose architecture carries a powerful message of social inclusion.

The Orquideorama, an orchid canopy in the Botanical Gardens, exemplifies the citys renaissance.   — cooperhewitt
