Ok, some pictures of Santiago de Chile.
Centro Cultural Gabriela Mistral (Cultural Center Gabriela Mistral).
One of my favorite buildings in here. It was made in the Government of Allendes, and after the Militar Strike it was used for the Dictator Pinochet as a HQ. After that I was used for events but it burned in a fire accident. Now it's remodeled and it looks better than ever.
All the "orange" parts of the structure are metallic plates with holes. Those holes create these illusions in some places that give idea of relief. It's opened in the middle, giving a open walk between 2 streets, this is great because at the other side there are restaurants and others, creating a continuity and use in the space.
Caja de Compensación Los Andes (Compensation Fund Los Andes).
A great us of glass and lights. It shows that offices can also be friendly to the space.
Iglesia de Santo Domingo (church).
Iglesia del Eterno Socorro.
This ones makes my sad. The church is in a beautiful Late Gothic but they did a road in front of it, they killed the continuity of the space and the church is in a awful state.
Ex Congreso Nacional.
Another sad one. Not because it's deteriorated or in bad shape, but rather because no one use it.
It was a train terminal, but after the train industry die in here, it become a market and a bus terminal.
Centro de Justicia.
Centro Cultural La Moneda.
I could keep the whole day posting pictures, but I don't think that much people care about architecture )=.
