Street Covered with Umbrellas


400 red umbrellas (outside of their intended purpose) suspended over the new pedestrian mall in the city of Talca to create a visual impression of the inhabitants of a city in which it is uncommon to see daring displays in public spaces.

The idea was conceived by students Jaime Latorre and Pablo Retamal, beginning with the topic and assignments given during the first two-month period of the 5th Year Architecture Workshop under the guidance of Professor Juan Román, School of Architecture University of Talca.

The professor in charge of this project was the architect Mauricio Ramirez
