Sunset Contemplation

Project Description

Our project was born by studying the sunset in the Chilean desert, where a very particular phenomenon occurs with light, we are located in the Antofagasta region (Chile) to see the sunset on Lake Chaxa where its mix of colors is unique. A module was created that could recreate the sunset in a more urban area, could have the colors and sensations of Lake Chaxa in any place. There is a cascade system which allows the sun's rays to be reflected through the aluminum creating those colors, in addition the water not only fulfills the function of allowing the sea to reflect light, but also creates that environment of tranquility and peace that is reflected in the chaxa lake.
