Abstract

BSB Valpo is a project for the revitalization of Valparaíso’s coastline. It is a new hub for listening, dialogue, and recreation showcasing the work of local communities, artists, craftsmen and performers within a haptic landscape open to public exploration.<br/><br/>The scheme was developed through looking at the site from several aspects, starting from the urban scale, moving to the immediate landscape, and finally to the scale of the building and architectural detailing with respect to its multifarious uses. It addresses the unlocking and re-purposing of an uninhabited heritage resource of the coast into a multipurpose public ground with aural considerations.<br/><br/>The choice of re-utilizing the warehouse is not only a step towards sustainable resource management but, also, a recognition of the value in conserving a historical landmark. One that speaks about Valparaiso’s evolution from a commercial port to a cultural capital.<br/><br/>
