The Chilean Building and the Earthquake-Proof Building Standards

  • Marco Barrientos

Resumen

The article inquires into the notion of Chilean building as a structural standard based on reinforced concrete walls as a seismically efficient resource. The theory and practice of this convention are contrasted with the Chilean Seismic Design Code through three local architecture projects built within the 70’s decade and the year 2009. Finally, the significance of this convention is discussed, proposing a conceptual expansion of the Chilean building from an architectural perspective.
