scs: hospedería de las alas
Hospedería de las Alas is located in Ritoque, Chile, in the site of the Open City, a project run by the Corporación Amereida and the School of Architecture and Design of the Catholic University of Valparaiso, which for fifty years has been constructing a town which now houses many of the school’s staff and contains a church, cementery and many public spaces and facilities. ‘Hospederia de las Alas’ is a bird observation shelter sited on top of sand dunes facing a nature reserve which houses innumerable bird species. The timber structure, composed of two intersecting ruled surfaces, is closed on the two sides exposed to the prevailing weather and semi-open in the direction of the nature reserve, thus allowing the observer to view the wide range of bird species without disturbing them.
