Workshop 7: “Heritage and Environment”


In 2011 I was professor of the workshop of Architecture called “Workshop 7: Heritage and Environment” of the University of the Sea, in La Serena (Taller 7: Patrimonio y Medioambiente, Universidad del Mar, sede La Serena).


The Case Study developed in the 7th Heritage and Environment Workshop was the valorization of Gabriela Mistral’s house Las Palmeras, through the restoration of the house and a new building, of contemporary design, that faces and puts in value the Preexisting building, either in full contrast or considering the main lines and proportions of preexistence and the Gabriela Mistral context in the new design.

I must say that the experience of working with the students and the assistant teacher was incredible; it was a mutual and collaborative learning, with a high level of motivation on the part of the students, obtaining excellent results, beginning to internalize and realize the importance and the opportunity that Preserving and activating heritage buildings means.
