Easter Island as search field for EPFL students

EPFL’s architecture section has set up an ambitious three-year course to address the environmental challenges of Easter Island. In 2018, the course focused on the development of regional analytical methods capable to consider and integrate the issues affecting not only territorial sustenance but also community thriving at macro level. In 2019, it focused on the technological choices implied within such visions, and the spatial organization and inhabitation patterns they naturally favor. In 2020, it will translate technological decisions into building strategies, programs and prototypical structures. The program takes place in collaboration with Easter Island’s local government and Chilean universities.
