Chile Deep South

Since the changeover in Chiles democratic system in 1990, the country has been achieving stable economic growth. Consequently, the landscape has been transforming with the sudden construction of buildings in the suburbs, as well as the main cities. Moreover, economic stability has increased the demand for architectural projects and has nurtured architects with fresh ideas a developing educational environment. Within this context, we are presenting in this issue architecture through which one perceives the earth. Chile has a wide climate zone, providing great changes in the natural environment. Architects in Chile are building architecture in dialogue with nature that closely examines materials and blends into the landscape. They do not push a theory, but rather one can perceive their own distinctive identity. Perhaps it is at the end of the world that one can find currents of new architecture.
