Mathias Klotz Arquitectos designed the Altamira College in the Andes foothills in Santiago, which was completed in 2000.
The classrooms and facilities surround a sloping central courtyard. Oddly-shaped openable windows give an interesting appearance to the aluminum walls of the slick rectangular buildings. Colorful squares and layers of glazing engage the student inside.
An exciting space is generated in the city. Klotz quotes Arrnando Uribe: "because there is no space, search for it."
