Entry Description

This Project was born initially as an urban sculpture contest for the Summit COP25, and was won by Fernando Prats in association with architecture studio Elton Leniz
The artwork is based on the observation of the “Andes Mountain”, the “poem of Chile” from Gabriela Mistral and the draws of geographer Pedro José Amado Pissis
The artist Fernando Prats designed 16 iron columns and distribute them on a circular concrete surface surrounded by a water mirror that establish a real and symbolic connection between the vertical and the horizontal of the skyline of Andes Mountain
Our objectives were to underline in a sensible way the materiality and the details of the columns and to achieve an intimate ambience at floor level for the persons that would go down the artwork
We decided to lit the structures from the top as a way to Project shadows of details of the columns on the floor and avoid any light pollution
We used small fittings that are located on the top of the columns integrated in a custom designed iron box and that disappear in the column
We choose 3W, 3 degrees beam, 3000K, fittings and place 3 on each side of the columns
The total electric consumption of the Project is 320W
