RECOVERING EMERGENCY HOUSING

New life for 70 wooden housing which sheltered families after earthquake of 1960.

 

In May of 1960 an earthquake of a magnitus of 9.5 Mv, shook the south of Chile. Known as the Great Earthquake of Chile, the most powerful recorded in the history of mankind, it cost the lives of 2000 people and damaged more than 2 million.

In 1960 in Chiloé , 70 houses were built to house families harmed after the earthquake. Over the years, due to the proximity to the sea and the materiality of them were degraded.
Our team together with the Spanish cooperative of La Junta de Andalucía, the rural society and the Municipality of Ancud, renewed and recovered the 70 homes.
