Chilean Landmark/Benchmark / by Michelle Linden




These Chilean landmark/benchmarks are as much art installation as they are civic architecture. Three architecture students, R. Hernández, M. Valdés, and O. Véliz created these pieces as a means to delineate an ancient path. These modules give visitors a direction, as well as a place to sit. The pieces themselves are all built from small sections of wood, none larger than 16 centimeters. The combination of structural imagery and tactile craft is really great... I just love this project!
