scs: the wave, public events space
home home
Sitio   Eriazo ,   our   client,   is   a   collective   whose   members   are   theatre   school   graduates   who   recover   empty,   abandoned,   urban   spaces in   the   city   of   Valparaiso,   Chile,   declared   World   Heritage   Site   by   UNESCO   in   2003,   and   put   them   to   community   use.      In   this   case they   commissioned   The   Scarcity   and   Creativity   Studio   to   design   and   build   a   Public   Performance   Space   which   they   will   use   to   offer free   theatre,   music   and   circus   performances   for   the   residents   of   the   city.   The   project   was   designed   during   the   fall   semester,   2015 and built in Ecuador 428, Valparaiso, Chile during November 2015.
