Teatro San Jorge

Bogotá Colombia 1935 – 1938

Teatro San Jorge
Bogotá, Colombia (1935-1938)
Architect: Alberto Manrique Martín
The interior was completely vandalised in 1999
The municipality bought the building and plans to refurbish it and reopen it this year 2017


The architect was “inspired” (the central one looks rather copied) by the designs that Pico did for the Folies Bergères in Paris (1926) and that were published in the magazine “La Construction Moderne” (France 1929)
