CHILLA Campus

N

CATA is a school located in Juliaca , Peru of about 1,000 students. They are looking to move into a new campus that would allow students to have more space for recreation, bigger classrooms, and more educational programs. The new design also educates the city on how to manage sewage and storm-water. 4

The Chilla Campus is located right outside the busy city of Juliaca. Juliaca is growing at an incredible pace and it is growing towards the campus. It is predicted that the city will completely surround the campus in the next 5-10 years. As seen above, the campus will have a significant presence in the city if Juliaca. This campus will be home to a total of 2,500 students.

Designated Storm-water Retention Area

Sewage & Storm Water

Designated Constructed Wetland Area

Precipitation is not constant during the year in Juliaca. But, during rain season the city has problems containing storm water which results in flooding. There designated areas that collects the storm water, which prevents flooding on campus, and then used for irrigation on the agriculture fields. Sewage will be managed on-site with the use of constructed wetlands. This sets a precedent for the rest of the city which only 30% have access to sewage lines.

Controlled Semi-Public Private Educational Area

Privacy & Security

Private Residential Area

Security from strangers and land squatters are the main concerns for this new campus. Therefore, the new campus will be organized into three tiers of security. During the day, the public will have access to “Controlled Semi-Public� Area but access will be limited for the rest of site, unless you are a 8

student, family, or resident.

Outdoor seating

Rain is expected for only a few weeks of the year. The majority of the time, the canal will be dry. Therefore, it becomes a social place for lunch or leisure. Site design in collaboration with Harrison Moxey. Rendering by Evan Wong.

Co m m erci al

This neighborhood has the potential to flourish. There is a stadium, home to the South Bend Cubs, which attracts fans during the baseball season. However, there no businesses that would give fans a reason to arrive before the game. There is no other reason to come to this neighborhood besides to watch the game. This neighborhood has become the center for homeless shelters and abandoned residential buildings.

There is a large concentration of homeless people in this area as well. They are all looking for the same thing, hope. Many are veterans and are looking for employment and new start. This empty lot has the potential to become project that boosts the economy and moral of this suffering neighborhood. It can provide new jobs and new housing opportunities. This lot can also become a destination for baseball fans. 15
