To commemorate its Bicentennial, the Chilean government has launched an initiative called “Bicentennial Legacy” to regenerate, revitalize, and consolidate the public spaces, heritage sites, and urban icons of the country.
As part of this program, Chile’s President, Sebastian Piñera, has proposed the “Plan Parque Metropolitano 100 Años”, which outlines projects that are to be developed within the Metropolitan Park of Santiago. This urban park is the principal public space within the city and is located on San Cristobal Hill, the geographical/metaphorical heart of the city.
One of these projects is the construction of a tower that will consolidate the numerous antennas currently located throughout the hill into a single infrastructure.
