As part of the preparations for the Pan America Games 2023, a project has emerged, led by the city’s local surf club (CAR SURF) to acquire a state-owned property, presenting the project through Chile’s Ministry for Sport, so that it might be replicated throughout the rest of Chile, depending on its outcomes. This project incorporates a series of national innovation sub-projects, such as wave, solar and wind power to supply the energy it consumes. Its furniture is being designed using post-consumer plastic waste, which might even be used in the floors and ceilings. It is currently in the research and trialling stage and incorporates control and monitoring software. It is also being developed under the advisement of an accessibility advisory firm, to take into consideration our adapted surfing team, among other factors.
