Bosque de Mimbre (Wicker Forest), Grupo Talca, Parque Araucano · Santiago, Chile (2015) @ Camila Romero I. for LOFscapes

On March 5, the fifth annual YAP_CONSTRUCTO (Young Architects Program) was inaugurated in Santiago’s Parque Araucano, in association with the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA, New York), MAXXI (Roma) and Istanbul Modern (Turkey) and, as of this year, the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Seoul).

The program, directed in Chile by the architects Jeannette Plaut and Marcelo Sarovic, presents the  “Bosque de Mimbre” (Wicker Forest), the winning work for the 2015 competition. This architectural intervention was created by the Talca Group (Martín del Solar and Rodrigo Sheward) in collaboration with Osvaldo Sandoval, wicker producer, and sculptor Vicente Gajardo, whose intervened stones are part of the exhibition. 

This  temporary architectural intervention was defined from a series of elements such as water and places to sit, mist and shade capable of containing occasional musical events through the creative, intelligent, and aesthetic use of resources, to establish a specific proposal for a space of citizen interaction. The exhibition is free and open to the public until April 30.
