On April 16th 2016, a magnitude-7.8 earthquake devastated coastal Ecuador, killing over 700 people just one month before being rattled once again by a second magnitude 6.8 quake. Roughly 10,000 buildings and 560 schools were either damaged or destroyed, affecting mostly small communities in fishing villages along the coast, where sixty to seventy percent of houses collapsed.
In the coastal town of San José de Chamanga, the site of the study tour an estimated 60% of homes were damaged, as were many of its public spaces and infrastructure. The workshop titled Reconstructing Chamanga, is organized and led by Carmen Mendoza Arroyo of School of Architecture UIC Barcelona in collaboration with Professor Santiago del Hierro of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Ecuador (PUCE) and contributes to the rebuilding efforts in the area.
