OMA masterplan for Bogotá. Have we not learned?

For a couple of decades, Bogotá  succeeded in improving the quality of life of its population by very careful strategic moves. Now a speculative pseudomodernist urban planning seems to finally be taking over.
It is unfortunate to see this turn of events. The plan appears to erase any footprint of the past; zoning the area eliminates the posibility of any mixed use or flexibility in the future; and by the plans it becomes apparent that this is yet another top down geometric layout for a sizable and significant part of the city, with little regard for human scale or people's interaction.

Read on and see.
