URBINA, Simón et al. Arquitectura de asentamientos de la costa de Tarapacá, norte de Chile. Estud. atacam. [online]. 2011, n.41, pp.63-96. ISSN 0718-1043.

We present a study of settlement patterns and domestic architecture for the Tarapacá Coast (ca. 19° 55' - 21° 43' S.). We expose new formative evidence and radiocarbon dates from Patache Peninsula sites and full construction database analysis from eight sites located between Pisagua and the Loa river. We discuss the variability of domestic buildings to argue a durable Coastal Architectonic Tradition during the Formative Period (900 BD - 900 AD), that points out long term changes and household innovation process inside coastal societies of Tarapacá.

Keywords : settlements; architecture; coastal architectonic tradition; Formative period; Tarapacá.
