GIL, Magdalena. The reconstruction of Valparaíso’s urban value after the 1906 earthquake. ARQ (Santiago) [online]. 2017, n.97, pp.78-89. ISSN 0717-6996.

The idea that disasters become an opportunity is almost a cliché; what we never know is who or what will benefit from it. Based on the debates following the 1906 earthquake in Valparaíso, this text argues that when a city is ruined and decisions to rebuild must be taken, the difference between what is valued and what is not is clearly shown. The opportunity, then, becomes a discussion on values.

Keywords : plan; city; land; place; disasters.
