Settings standards of concentration on simplicity
Teresa Moller’s architecture stands out due to its scope, its language, and its unique vision. What makes her such an outstanding artist is that she works in perfect harmony with the environment, respecting and preserving its essence.
This volume captures the relationship she establishes between the landscape, architecture, nature, and native flora, while always taking into account the needs of the local residents and incorporating an aesthetic and functional reevaluation of the spirit of a particular place.
Since 1990, Chile’s diverse landscapes—from the Atacama Desert in the north to the Lakes Region in the south, and from the Pacific Coast in the west to the Andes in the East—have served as the settings for the majority of Teresa Moller’s projects. This diversity means that she approaches each project by first examining the valuable elements that already exist at a site and assessing the natural surroundings, the local ecology, and the local architecture, thus making each project the direct and unique result of its environment.
