    it could be featured on archdaily. it's great that they didn't just demolish it, but instead chose to reintegrate it. it's a very nice building!
    muchas gracias for posting it. and for updating the thread.


    Q.
    have you thought about going to easter island? when my dad went on his journey around the world, he spent 6 months island hopping in the south pacific. and i think easter island was his last stop before heading for peru. he told me the island isn't anything special, but the moai were indeed impressive to see.

    ^^
    got back from easter island on monday, it was the last 'big' thing on my 'things to see in chile while i'm living here' list. i really liked it. i liked it a lot more than i thought i would actually. and i thought the island was pretty beautiful in and of itself, not just moai. it's got a beautiful, rugged coastline, it's volcanic - you can hike up to 2 or 3 craters, and it's got gorgeous, rolling hills and beautiful colours. and the ocean is so blue it even looks fake.

















    another crater-turned-pond, this one inside the quarry where they built all the moai.

    Beautiful photos. I love the blueness of the sea in the last few pictures.

    I had to study every picture. This was like a mini vacation! So much better than any book. Thank you for sharing this fabulous journey. Loved every single view.

    Love the photos, sput, thanks for sharing! The nature is beautiful. This is my personal favourite, for the lighting and colours (and of course the statues):




    Well done!
