The combination of Chile’s natural geography and susceptibility to earthquakes, its urban predisposition and European heritage, has ensured this is a country whose architecture is wide-ranging. Colonial-style buildings remain common in many places and there are numerous examples of neoclassical, Georgian and modern architecture. In southern Chile, one can find a traditional ruca (or ruka), a Mapuche home made of wood and covered in hay. Chilean architecture’s penchant for contemporary dwellings, built using concrete, glass and steel, has placed the country firmly on the modern-day architectural map. As a long country, Chile inevitably experiences a myriad of weather patterns. Consequently, architectural structures have varied historically and were determined by a particular region’s climate: materials such as stone and mud were used in the drier north, adobe in the central province and wood in the wetter south.
