From the architect. This thermal river flows generously in a secluded valley, 30 miles from the small town of San Pedro de Atacama, Chile.

In its long course, it creates many natural pools to bath that have been used since ancient times, as the two existing Inca houses, prove.

The landscape work intends to give splendour to the place, poetically. And make a sustainable use ot the pools, possible.

Raised boardwalks treat the riverside grasses gently, and reveal the unique beauty of the river's long winding course, and the pools in it.

Two basic white concrete structures house all the facilities, and make the wild nature of the place, stand out.

Location to be used only as a reference. It could indicate city/country but not exact address. Cite: "Puritama Hot Springs / Germán del Sol" 31 Aug 2008. ArchDaily. Accessed . <http://www.archdaily.com/5955/puritama-hot-springs-german-del-sol/>
