The Uyuni Salt Flat Shelter contest

Uyuni Salt

The Uyuni Salt Flat Shelter contest seeks a re-encounter with nature and with the human being within solitude Acceleration, instantaneousness, immediacy, technologization … The daily life of the human being has been subsumed under synchronous devices such as watches and mobile phones, generating a stressed society, which has lost all trace of its biological temporality and of its life in common with the middle.

Here in the salar, all the technology disappears. All computerization is not possible. Can a project promote other ways of life that are more leisurely, relaxed and in relation to nature? Can architecture give us the possibility of making up for that lost time? A time in dialogue with nature What is the basis for doing this type of architecture?
