SANTIAGO, Sep. 24, 2010 (Xinhua News Agency) -- Chile's earthquake experience has improved its companies' chances of winning architectural deals in the Chinese market, according to Fernando Marin, Director of the Project Office Guild Association of Architects of Chile on Thursday.

Marin told Xinhua the association's public-private partnership had been working for only nine months to position itself in the Chinese market but already it was preparing for a second stage where it expected to close deals.

"Two aspects that allow us to differentiate ourselves from these other foreign offices in China, and that we have enough in common with China, is our geographic and climatic diversity and our experience in (building to withstand) seismic activity," Marin said.

The Chinese public was particularly interested in the development of Chilean architecture, especially after the country's building code stood up well to the earthquake on February 27 this year. It was a demonstration of the professionalism of Chilean anti-seismic architecture in limiting the impact of the earthquake on modern construction, he said.

"The earthquake, although an unexpected misfortune, helped us to show the quality of our seismic building," Marin said.
