Grupo TALCA School of Architecture


Academy for Regional Pragmatism
Architecture in Chile has unique atmosphere. It is not about a particular technique or cutting-edge technology. The Chilean architecture appears simple but not easy to imitate. It is not splendid-looking but sincere.
The School of Architecture at the University of Talca has its own motto to create new spaces needed by the region and the nation. Its programs are for students to understand what society expects from architects and adapt to a continuously changing environment by acquiring abilities to survive in a competitive society. The School, established in 1999, is one of the places in Latin America, where the most interesting architectural projects take place. It seeks opportunities in a limited environment with reasonably-priced materials that can be recycled.
Since 2004, experimental workshops have begun in more than 15 places. Students, from 2nd grade to 5th grade, can participate in this workshop that is held from August to September every year.
Their works have something in common: materials and methods to use them. Participants utilize materials such as wood and stone that are easy to find around us and even wastes. The materials also include recyclables from woodfuel and reed branches to barrels that hold and preserve wine. These crude materials are used without any change or through a minimum transformation process to build a construction, in which efforts can be glimpsed to keep the original "Nature" of each material.
"Laborers' Pavilion" is not only an economical space used with abandoned wooden pieces but holds the rural image of land. This provides a shelter for workers and a space for processing salmons.
"Landmark for Tourists" are located at the entrance, crossings and borders between areas in Talca village. This serves as a landmark to give direction and a rest place for tourists. When all modules in the structures in seven different places are put together, the number goes up as many as 3,300 units. In the construction, which was built as a web connected with modules, curved furniture was placed where people can sit and lie down for relaxation.
"Pinohuacho Observation Deck" is located in a main road, overlooking the village at a glance. As it is made up of wooden materials from forests, the Deck also appears to communicate with the surroundings.
"Box in Canelillo" a one-unit gallery, has a lattice-pattern facade with long wood frames in a crossing style. Between these frames, windows were built, which improves quality from functional and aesthetical perspectives.
?orse Race Pavilion?is a place for meeting and a venue for festival. Rough stone and wood were employed in order to hold the memory of land. All feels that the land has are the motives for this building.
"Place for Rest" is a hut for vineyard workers where the scent of vine grapes drenches the air. The animated-looking roof and benches were made by putting together wine barrel staves. People can enjoy meals and share their stories in this shelter.
From a distance, this structure appears as if trees emerge from the ground - "Reed Cover" station. This doubles as a station situated between the highway and railroad as well as a rest place. Three pillars that were made of bamboo were assembled in a slant way, building another column. The cover was made up of about 300 reed sticks, through which light shines dimly.

Medellin, Colombia


Medellin Serves Two Ends
Urban Transformation and Social Reformation

In the movie "Maria Full of Grace" with Colombia in the background. An 18-year-old Maria suffers heavy labor at a flower plantation. Frustrated by supporting family livelihoods and poverty, she becomes a drug mule and smuggles cocaine capsules to the U.S.
Colombia used to have a checkered history with drugs and violence. At the beginning of a civil war that claimed 400,000 lives, bloodsheds did not stop. At the end of the 1990's, armed guerillas dominated 40 percent of the entire nation. In the capital of Bogota, car bomb attacks and kidnapping became commonplace. Worse yet, rebels abduct civilians for ransom to raise funds, creating a black market trade. Numbers speak louder than words: around 2,800 abductions and more than 6,000 homicides a year.
However, a wind of change has started blowing in Colombia since the President Alvaro Uribe was inaugurated and declared a war against drug trafficking rings and rebels in 2002.
Medellin, the second largest Colombian city after Bogota, is situated in the 1,500m highland in the central province of Antioquia. In the northern mountainous area of the city, a number of shacks were full because displaced people escaped from the bloodshed due to civil wars. As drug traffickers governed this area, people remained insecure due to frequent gunfights. Thus people often have to witness deaths of their families and neighbors in the village.
Along with efforts to restore law and order in the city, a social movement was organized for narrowing gaps among regions and realizing harmony. That is, the beginning of a urban planning: constructing public transportation infrastructure and laying the foundation for community education and cultural facilities. The city of Medellin proposes a detailed city plan through the analysis of the quality of life in the city. Based on the results, the city starts putting public funds into crime-ridden districts where the quality of life is low.
The general planning was done by an industrial and commercial entiy, EDU Empresa de Desarrollo Urbano. The organization was established in 1993 when "San Antonio Square" was constructed. Its initial name, the Developing Real Estate Agency, was changed to the current EDU and now engages in urban development and real estate projects. EDU put forward the Territory Ordering Plan to reinvigorate the city, achieve balanced regional development and redevelopment and Integral Urban Projects to improve the quality of life in disadvantaged areas. Specific plans by district and village were established, which is aimed at narrowing the gap between regions and creating a sustainable model for the environment. As part of Integral Urban Projects, "Metrocable" was launched in 2004, in which people can use the transit system after paying for Metro fee.
As a result, residents in this poor rural area have easy access to the downtown. This has brought down crime rates dramatically and in turn the area has shaken off its shameful stigma. In addition, with the construction of Metrocables, new jobs in construction, cleaning and building security increased. In other words, the new transit system brought a new life to 150,000 residents in the deserted Santo Domingo area. Besides, four bridges and eight crossings were built for pedestrians to address the inconvenience by mountainous region's characteristic.
