The Chuquibambilla School, Peru - AMA ( Afonso Maccaglia Architects) + BOSCH arquitectos
Chuquibambilla School Project is a social project that is developing and building a school in the Native Community of Chuquibambilla, in Satipo, Peru.
The school was to become a meeting place for students and teachers, as well as a space for development, meeting and learning for the entire community. The building was designed to have different modules around a central courtyard. The programme includes rooms and outdoor spaces for various academic and administrative activities, covered patios for outdoor teaching and recreational activities, as well as a dormitory for students. The building design sought to make use of the available natural resources and ensure an anti-seismic structure that would withstand the passing of time with minimal maintenance. Other major concerns included cross ventilation, natural lighting, water collection, water treatment and protection against rain and high solar radiation.
