Ekawa is

Our wild bamboo architecture lab combines local wisdom and innovative design in a continually evolving expression of sculptural structures.

The region is part of a transformational process, located where the Andean mountain geography dissolves into the ecology of the tropical planes in Colombia. Beginning as natural wildness, over the last century the territory has gone through a number of phases: first damage through exploitative farming; then pausing in stillness due to exodus caused by war; and now in a time of peace, looking towards a healing.

Historically a home to rainforest, the region of San Blas has an abundance of natural springs and sunshine. A gentle transition is beginning, moving away from a culture of cattle farming and rainforest destruction, towards reconnection between humans and nature. Now we see reforestation and the emergence of alternative living.

​Life here is adventurous. The previously farmed land of Ekawa is now home to many bamboo sculptures for inhabitation, edible gardens and all sorts of wildlife. Several families live here and our lifestyles evolve through re-connection with the wildness of the earth, in a space of active, creative flow. Ekawa connects with the locality of San Blas and global ideals through workshops and lifestyle experiences, bringing together deep nature and creativity with humans from all walks of life.
