Re-interpretive field for fog water collection systems
The project intends to solve the issue of a lack of architecture and landscape in the fog water collection systems (SCAN) facilities in Chile, where the elements called ‘atrapanieblas’ [fog-catchers] fail to properly integrate to the functional, social and cultural dynamics of the place. At present, communities that do not have drinkable water networks and are supplied by water tanks, require SCAN projects that integrate social and cultural factors.
The main objective is to generate architecture and landscape strategies and operations where a reinterpretation of SCAN fields is proposed, which in addition to solving water problems among communities at Cavilolén, manages to integrate itself into the dynamics of the territory, considering the local activities with a social and cultural purpose.
Due to the lack of national architectural designs that contemplate SCAN, the project is based on international references and Land Art, so that future interventions have as main objective to supply and sustain social and cultural dynamics through an intervention with industrial elements
