CRUZ O., José  y  TURELL, Ana. Escuela Villa El Palqui. ARQ (Santiago) [online]. 2004, n.57, pp. 20-25. ISSN 0717-6996.

The construction of a dam in the Elqui River valley means new possibilities for agriculture and the founding of new settlements populated by former inhabitants of the flooded zone and newcomers to the area. This school is the largest public building in one of these new enclaves. A symbol of the community, its materiality and design are in keeping with the area’s fragile equilibrium.

Palabras clave : Architecture - Chile; arid zones; educational institutions; schools; wood architecture; Elqui Valley.
