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.
