Description This article aims to analyze the work of the Utopía group, a collective of three architects from the city of Medellín (Colombia), who produced their artworks between 1979 and 2009. In order to do this, the text describes their artistic career, analyzes some of their major works, which rely on intertextual relations with architecture, and proposes a link between the fictional and project-oriented aspects based on the architectural references that can be found in their work. By examining the group’s influences and by discussing theories and notions common to architecture, urbanism, and visual arts, the article aims to address the question of the utopian dimension inherent to aesthetic contemplations on the city; as well as to review an important chapter of Colombian art history.
