The Language and Creation Center is an academic department focused on the development of creation and research projects, located at the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Construction of the University of the Americas in Santiago de Chile.

Its goal is to promote the development of inter- and trans-disciplinary projects, through the identification and exploration of research lines that cut through architecture, graphic design, digital animation and building.

Research Lines
