Cuartilla 07 / Spirits of the Mind
Spirits of the Mind Mural / Santiago College / Santiago, Chile 2012:
With the moving of Santiago College School to its new campus at Los Trapenses, it became imperative the creation of an allegoric artwork capable of captivating the alma mater of the original school campus. For these purpose a large scale mural was thought-out to be installed at the new Dining Hall. The iconographic proposal was based on an architectural survey of the old campus combined with a landscape morphological study of the new campus location at La Dehesa Valley whose distinctive landmark is the Manquehue Hill.
The above is closely related to Guillermo Rosende’s master plan, the school design architect where the orientation and shape of more than 10 buildings which constitute the new campus, are in relation and proportion to the surrounding landscape.
