New base camp

Midterm workshop presentations

26-4 How to deal with gentrification you know it will happen in the near future but hasn't happened yet? Are you facilitating it, opposing it, or try to make the inevitable merge the existing condition? What should happen to the Franklin area?

Adding high-rise apartment buildings with a public program added in a space that is adjustable, flexible, and permeable? Giving shape to the dreams of the people already living and working in the neighborhood? Concentrating the commercial program, which is spreading throughout the neighborhood, and adding it with other program in the Matadero-Franklin? Claiming the neglected spaces with micro-architecture? Improve and add new green public spaces based on collected date like sound, smell, sight, and movements?  Set out a system to preserve intangible elements? Use the gentrification process to make the area more sustainable and energy efficient? Or change the way the area is perceived by turning the soon to be abandoned hospital into a lookout point and market place?

Lightning Round

25-4 Lightning Round is something like Pecha Kucha but with only 3 minutes of presentation time - in Chile they speak very very fast so why take the PK 6 minutes? 32 Participants presented their graduation project with the speed of lighting.
