A conference featuring renowned scholars and practitioners discussing architecture and urbanism in Chile’s capital city during the Pinochet dictatorship.
Topics to be discussed include the impact of the dictatorship’s policies and practices, including those related to its adherence to economic neoliberalism, on issues such as segregation, the use of public space, architectures of and for consumption, architectural styles, magazines and biennials, and housing and urban policies.
This event is sponsored by the Santiago Research Cell, created in 2013 by a group of alumni from the Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) to engage in collaboration, networking, and research initiatives in the areas of architecture, use of public spaces, urban planning, post-disaster reconstruction, and the future of cities.
