The metaphor of the lookout docks
The first gesture of outreach to the sea, which took the city of Antofagasta, was from the business need that lived in the nitrate era of the century XIX and XX, where nine docks, causing the first industrial port city is formed around a pond , where was the door of entrance and exit of the city with the Pacific Ocean. Currently in this historic maritime market of fishermen who came to settle in the period of relocation of the new port, living, is the process of deterioration and decline of the docks. Consolidation and historic rescue of this area has been hampered by disconnected growth that has kept the city with the sea, by the late assessment of its historical heritage. Therefore, the proposal of "The metaphor of the viewpoint piers", seeks to rescue through the program of the "maritime market" the historical essence of the place, highlighting the activity of Fishworkers, shopping and leisure by the sea, through the tours and Visual encounters at the docks mirador suspended above the sea. Also, incorporated the use of materials and architectural language, which reinterpreted the pier as space of contemplation and find community, using materials such as; steel and glass to facilitate the permeability and continuity from all areas of the project, besides keeping the design elements and shafts of the place. Finally, the proposal on an urban scale seeks to consolidate the relationship of the city to the edge sea from a master plan, enabling and creating spaces of continuity, which are complemented by the architectural proposal in search of an activation process of the Maritime market.
