Embajada de Brasil

The Brazilian Embassy in Santiago (Chile) located on the main avenue of the city, witness of many riots and strikes, has been hidden with a blanket of omission through the years. The architects Ipiña Nieto project was focused on recovering the undoubted importance of Palacio Errázuriz, not only within the premises of the Embassy, but in the city of Santiago. As an opening act, the film presents the choreography of a thin layer of fabric that covers the quiet building, and starts to move, exposing the new and still spaces of the Embassy, with a simple action. The building embraces the spectator to discover the new life of the space.
