A team of Chilean architects has completed a new business faculty for Diego Portales University comprising a pair of concrete boxes with balconies and terraces slotted over, under and through them.
With an ambition to create structures ”with weight that speaks of permanence and stability”, the team designed a complex made up of three main blocks that are arranged around staggered terraces to follow the natural slope of the landscape.
The base of the building, designed as multi-level podium, grounds the complex. This houses public facilities and shared facilities, including the school library, an auditorium and a cafeteria.
