Santiago de Chile Casa – competition submission
The house is organized around three basic criteria: Firstly, In order to get cross ventilation during summer: every space must have double orientation and corridors mast be avoided . Secondly, in order to animate circulation: to create an inner topography with ending points that frame significant fragments of the landscape.3 In order to gain solar radiation during winter to expose a maximum perimeter to the north . As a result of these 3 objectives a “tree” kind of layout is displayed on the site evolving according to different and particulars needs.

First Prize
Architect: Sebastian Irarrazaval ; Associated Architects: Martin Labbé and Carolina Portugueis
The competition was open to faculty teachers and former students. Participants were asked to present project portfolios and ideas for the new building. The jury was composed by the faculty dean, the faculty directors and the university infrastructure director.
The five stories building will be placed in the faculty Campus in Santiago de Chile and poses a structural system based on light buttresses that free interior spaces, in order to achieve maximum flexibility.
A the same time, in order to achieve greatest comfort standards (light and ventilation), inner spaces have double orientation, enhanced by a circulation placed in the perimeter.
