WOOD HEIGHT BUILDING
HOTEL CENTRO Ornitológico KO MAMÜLL
Humedal Delta Trancura River, Pucón, Araucanía Region, Chile
The present study aims to evaluate the real possibilities of wood as a construction material to become a competitive alternative from all points of view with traditional systems of construction of high-rise buildings, exploring the new technologies of wood construction, Particularly CLT (Cross Laminated Timber).
The project consists of a Hotel and Ornithological Center called KO MAMÜLL located in the wetland of the Trancura River Delta, in the city of Pucón, Region of Araucanía, Chile.
The idea of exploring the concept of "Hybrid Project", where places (Humedal - City of Pucón), programs (Hotel - Ornithological Center), Structural Techniques (CLT - Concrete) and ornithological ways of inhabiting the exterior route are considered.
The fragmented architecture (buildings and paths to the wetland) seeks to accommodate the geography through the exterior, intermediate and interior spaces, to have the real experience of inhabiting the place.
The project seeks to bring to light a hidden treasure in the city of Pucón, the Trancura Wetland delta, to be incorporated into the city and deliver a public program. Ornithological Center (to inform and educate the population - native and tourist - about this important place and the benefits that it means to preserve and inhabit it responsibly) and also a private program.
