Architectural Association Visiting School Chiloé Archipelago

Marking almost 200 years since Darwin's Voyage of the Beagle, we will journey to the Chiloé Archipelago in northern Patagonia and re-explore this remote area through fieldwork, relishing the opportunity to investigate an outdoor laboratory.

The region’s myriad of cultural and natural components will form the spine of our collection. We will delve deep into the archipelago's national parks, catalogue its world heritage-listed wooden churches as we listen to the legends of Trauco and other supernaturals, survey the topographical shifts of Andean volcanoes as they sink into the Pacific, observe the tides that helped mechanise the stilt houses, chronicle the politics of salmon farming crisis.

Once samples are collected, behaviours examined, witnesses interviewed, ecosystems monitored, measurements recorded and the archipelago strip-searched, our explorations will guide us to construct the ways we will tell these stories to others.
