SEE (Santiago Emergent Ecologies) international ideas competition aims to articulate a series of concrete projects for the fringe comprised between the city of Santiago and the El Roble ecological conservation site (Sitio Proritario el Roble). The el Roble conservation site is one of the major reservoirs of biodiversity in Chile; its resources and ecosystemic relations have a direct impact on the environment and the quality of life in the Region of Santiago, and influence the potential economic development of the area.
The objective is to take this site as an opportunity to generate new meanings for the periurban areas of the Metropolitan Region of Santiago, creating productive landscape that at the same time can protect biodiversity and promote a better relationship with the environment; imagining new ways and opportunities to live in the areas surrounding Santiago de Chile.
Thanks to the support of the Chilean National Council for the Arts and Culture (CNCA) and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Santiago (MAC Quinta Normal) we have been able to eliminate the subscription fee. The competition will therefore be free of charge for all the participants.
Following our supporters’ requests, we have also: - opened the competition to individuals and teams of students and professionals of every discipline, with no age nor affiliation restriction - extended the deadline for submitting the proposals to the 5th of September 2016.
It has been confirmed that the opening of the exhibition showcasing the winning proposals will take place at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Santiago (MAQ Quinta Normal) on the 11th of November 2016. An award ceremony will follow the next day, November 12th, 2016.
