Bolivia: Entry portals - concept sketch

Marking the entry points to the town, two large portals were designed and have now been built. They combine traditional stone and adobe walls with steel towers and trusses - junked leftovers from a former mine - used as structure. The trusses bridging between the towers flanking the road serve as a platform for sculptures. The towers have been built and can be seen at: http://www.culpinak.org/en/photos.htmMarcando el camino de entrada al pueblo en sus extremos norte y sur se deseñaron y se han construido dos grandes puertas. Combinan un revestimiento de piedra y adobe con torres y vigas de acero - chatarra recobrada de una mina cercana - para su estructura interior. Las torres laterales - hoy en dia completas - enmarcan esculturas asentadas sobre las vigas que salvan el camino (ver http://www.culpinak.org/en/photos.htm
