After Lights [Passage to Opacity]

Tapuhue (Place of the Gods) of the indigenous people, has witnessed the expansion of Santiago since the early Spanish colonization. The mountain which was renamed to Cerro San Cristobal by the spanish conquistadors is now the largest metropolitan park in South America. The project proposes that part of the mountain remains opaque to the tourists and give agencies to the Mapuche and other indigenous groups.

The two environments, one forum and one sanctuary, are two typologies for different events of gathering, interactions, and healing/learning practices. They are connected with a path that begins with the obsolete observatory and follows the moon cycle. In light of the recent protests in Chile that have led to the writing of a new constitution, the project envisions how indigenous epistemology, especially cosmological knowledge, informs political and social decisions.
