Socio-Cultural Centre of A Trisca

The Socio-Cultural Centre of A Trisca is a must for lovers of quality contemporary architecture. Designed by John Hejduk, one of the most influential architects in the second half of the 20th century, thanks to his teaching work in New York and his theoretical essays, the building fits in with the area´s existing fabric, completing an acute-angled corner. Its stone façades feature expressive balconies with thick steel tubes and violent square-shaped arrows, also made of steel, inserted into the façade facing Belvís. The windowpanes of the horizontal openings follow the building´s tight curvature. Inside, the ground-floor ceiling is completely covered with fretwork depicting characteristic forms from Hejduk´s images, while there is a good view of the city from the terrace.

Completed after his death, in the summer of the year 2000, this building, along with the stone-and-glass towers erected in the City of Culture and initially designed for the neighbouring Belvís Park, make Santiago one of the few privileged cities with constructions by John Hejduk.
