The assignment was to establish the silence, the stillness and contemplation for the development of Biological Medicine in Chile. This medicine can be defined as the encounter between the Oriental wisdom and German medicine.

Now the challenge was to generate inside this noisy city a space for silence and contemplation. This leads to the creation of an inner courtyard with a lagoon formed by rocks of the Andes Range which through 2 waterfalls achieve to create the silence. A curved lattice made of wood sticks build a more intime condition facing the street, and conforming with these two elements the inner courtyard. An Architectonic element which gives foot to a permanent relation between the interior and the exterior. Giving this way a temporality given by the vegetation and the changing of the seasons.
