O2 Gymnasium, Territoria Building in Las Condes, Santiago de Chile by Cazú Zegers + AIRA Arquitectos

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

Article source: Cazú Zegers + AIRA Arquitectos

The point of departure that moulds the original project concept is the building’s name: “Territoria”  territory, which indicates that the architecture appropriates the geography of Chile. The territory of Chile with its contrasts and frictions is the horizontal between the physical and the metaphysical, where the impact of the action of the elements causes friction  a territory that defines the limit between the physical and metaphysical.
