Antonio Sofán Arquitecto

Architects from Bogotá, Bogota, Colombia
Antonio Sofán got his architectural degree from Javeriana University in Bogota Colombia in 1989. A year later he moved to New York where he completed his graduate studies at Pratt Institute. In 1993 he returned to Colombia to design his first important commission, the headquarters for a local newspaper “el Meridiano” located in the city of Monteria. At his own practice studio in Bogota he designed Colegiatura Colombiana, a university campus located in the city of Medellin, and several other important residential projects including some single-family homes and the interiors of high-end apartments. His determination to understand architectural context and its relation to the end user has brought him to explore new aesthetic options much more engaged to sustainability and the environment. In 2001 he designed Clínica Montería which up until now has been his most important project. Through the design of this clinic he experimented with color and human anatomy. So, the relationship between interior and exterior are analogous to the one between the body and soul. In 2001 he is back in the United States to join several firms like: Kling, Peter Marino, Daroff Design and WRT Design in Philadelphia. Today, he is a Registered Architect in the States of New York and Pennsylvania and LEED accredited Professional.
