The Camp and the City


Territories of extraction.


The publication aims to articulate a discussion about the territories of extraction in order to set up adequate concepts and provide a general overview of their challenges. Calama -i.e., the most important mining cluster in Chile and one of the most important hubs for copper extraction in the world- is presented as the key case study in order to structure an evidence-based discussion, offering ground to develop a critical viewpoint that can frame design opportunities. The discussion is accompanied by critical texts by Pablo Allard, Maria Ignacia Arrasate, Mariana Barrera, Sourav Kumar Biswas, Diane Davis, Agustina Gonzalez Cid, Rania Goshn, El Hadi Jazairy, Rahul Mehrotra, Flavio Sciaraffia, Jeannette Sordi, Ricardo Truffello, Luis Valenzuela, and Felipe Vera.
