The @ConstruyeSolar expo took place in Parque O´Higgins and we were there.
A challenge that invites universities in Chile and the world to develop prototypes of sustainable social housing, in order to change the face of housing in our country. The prototypes are built on a real scale and then exposed at the expo where they are evaluated based on their energy efficiency, comfort and sustainability, among other aspects.
The aim is to show us how sustainable technologies advance. As you watch television on cable channels day by day new ways of building and optimizing construction methods, in the center of Santiago, we could see and learn interactively.
The objectives are to develop social housing that incorporates sustainability criteria, promote scientific research, urban development and construction productivity, among other matters. Support innovation and awareness and incorporation of construction criteria on the benefits, economic, social and environmental, that sustainable construction offers.

The team from Universidad Del Desarrollo de Concepción won first place in the contest organized by Minvu, La Ruta Solar and co-organized by the Illustrious Municipality of Santiago. The initiative also has the technical support of the Federico Santa María Technical University.
The second place in this initiative went to the University of Chile, who donated their prototype to be replicated in the community of Palmilla, in the O’Higgins region, which was affected by past fires, to become a community center.
The third place, meanwhile, went to the Central University of Chile.
The activity included the participation of the Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Paulina Saball, who highlighted the innovation capacity of the teams that were in competition and the replicability that these initiatives will have in public policies. “We have to work with all the teams to make these homes become adjustable prototypes, standard homes, possible to replicate in different environments and housing sectors,” he said.
