Resumen

KAPSTEIN, Glenda. Amphitheater City. ARQ (Santiago) [online]. 2009, n.73, pp. 23-27. ISSN 0717-6996.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-69962009000300004.

Valparaiso is part of the eastern coastal border of the Pacific Ocean; its form of city amphitheatre, looking towards the north and towards the sea identifies it, and its hilly geography gives it character and scale. The author analyzes this historical adaptation, from its foundation in the flat area, up to its organic growth on the hillsides and crevices.

Palabras clave : Valparaiso; Chilean-Urbanism; topography; history; urban morphology; city-port.
