"Parador en el Aire is a rest over the landscape, an interaction with the mountains, a flirting with the river, a simple recreation granted by nature..."
The initiative emerged from the idea to join architecture with landscape. The zone, placed at the foothills of the mountains on the O´Higgins region, is characterized for been a pause in the route, obligatory for some, and optional for others.
Three are the protagonists: the tourist, the cyclist and the mule drivers.
In the territory draws a touristic route that connects San Fernando and Las Termas del Flaco. As well as been a consolidated rout for thermal tourism, is also an outstanding rout for mountain biking, a journey for mule drivers searching forage for their animals and a path that will connect Chile with Argentina through Las Damas.
A police control, located at km. 30 of the route I-45, directs the way up and down of the tourists that visits Termas del Flaco. The place, that has a privileged sight seen towards Tinguiririca river and the mountains, is a meeting point between travelers waiting at the edge of the road the opening of the path, and those who comes back.
The project aims to be an element where visitors can leave behind their daily routine surrounded by nature. It is placed at the edge of the road that holds seats constructed with trunks of native trees. A slope that goes down form the hill that ends in a platform suspended in the air.
