Located in Ritoque on central Chile's Pacific coast, Open City is a unique community established in the 1970s by faculty members from the nearby e[ad] school of architecture at the Pontifical Catholic University of Valparaíso. Here Professor David Jolly Monge, a founding member of the Open City, and Guest-Editors Christian Hermansen Cordua and Michael Hensel describe how the construction of structures on the site offer the collective community and students alike ongoing opportunities for 'thinking, research and experimentation'.
