History[edit]

At 1962 a group of architecture students, allegedly from Universidad de América (English: University of América), manifested their nonconformity with the education and academic formation mechanisms established in the education system of the university. Their nonconformity was because the architectonic models taught in the university were for the European geography and therefore difficult to apply in the geographical structure of Colombia.

Because of this, a student movement was conceived in order to reform and restructure the system by an institution to respond to the needs of the students. By august of that year, a large number of students by teams were installed in the Theatre of the National Park on a temporary basis, led by students of higher semesters. By September

Para agosto del mismo año, un gran número de estudiantes conformados por equipos de trabajo y bajo responsabilidades legales, económicas y de gestión humana, se instalaron en el Teatro del Parque Nacional de forma temporal, encabezados por estudiantes de semestres superiores. The September 14, 1962 were approved institutional regulations and signed the founding document in the Oval Room of the National Capitol.
