Award – Urban Design
Project name: Las Salinas: An Ecological and Urban Regeneration in Viña del Mar, Chile
Project location: Valparaíso, Viña del Mar, Chile
Firm name: Sasaki
Jury comments: Las Salinas could be viewed as a “strategy salad,” but the urban interventions planned for this coastal Chilean community are promising. Now, residents may access the waterfront by automotive, pedestrian, and rail pathways. A brownfield site is rehabilitated to accommodate the stuff of communities. The jury was impressed by this plan’s organization and circulation.
