Developer Case Study: Mixed-Use in Medellin, Colombia

Using Deepblocks Developer, we can go worldwide and generate a new construction project analysis. Today we look at Medellin, Colombia. 

As an architecture student, I relished the opportunity to reshape the world. However, upon entering the practice, I was met with the harsh reality that my role was not to innovate but to formally convey the developer's vision.

The architecture simulation could not have been further from the truth. 

During my academic simulation, my designs did not consider the practicality of gravity, cost, and the expenses of operating a building. Naively, I believed that the excellence of my ideas would be discovered and brought to fruition somehow.

The great distance between architecture and finance.

Deepblocks Developer is designed to bridge the gap between design and finance, challenging the notion that they are adversaries. It provides a comprehensive snapshot of the financial implications, such as cost, income, and returns, all within the scope of a massing study.
