PEREZ OYARZUN, Fernando  and  QUINTANILLA CHALA, José. The value of transforming: Academic building, Faculty of Arts, Oriente campus. ARQ (Santiago) [online]. 2017, n.97, pp.66-77. ISSN 0717-6996.

An intervention on a heritage building can either increase or ruin its value. Architecture has that power. The fear of affecting the value of what already exists leads many to opt for mimesis. However, such an obvious alternative is not the only one. This building shows that, by means of a careful interpretation of the existing, an intervention can add value to heritage without the need to formally duplicate it.

Keywords : heritage; interpretation; pre-existing; Santiago; Chile.
