Plaza de la Ciudadania and Palacio La Moneda Cultural Center


The restoration of democracy in Chile lacked a similar revitalization of urban and public spaces. Santiago, the only metropolis, lacks public spaces within a dense Hispanic layout, except for the barrio cívico. Plaza de la Ciudadanía and Centro Cultural Palacio de La Moneda are recent public works for Chile's bicentennial celebration. The new square aims to restore democracy and civic traditions. The architectural project restored pedestrian use of the public space and included subterranean structures for traffic and parking. The continuity of urban and historic threads extends beyond the project's architectural scope.
