Easter Island Highschool
How can one work in a place where culture tends to be a cliché? How can one choose an architectural language that rejects folklore without getting alienated from the place? How can one work in place where the most abundant material is the horizon?
We thought of excavating a mass that domesticated the openness for the use of the school, but still allowed for the horizon to be experienced from every point of the project.
