– Structural engineering
Under the impetus of the ETEX-PIZARREÑO group, a number of companies generously sponsored the construction of an area for ecumenical meditation on Mount Chepe, on the banks of the Bio-Bio River in Concepción.
The construction is a large sundial consisting of 41 vertical bands, 24 minutes apart, crossed by a series of elliptical ring segments corresponding to the sun’s path on 21 June, July, August, September, October and November. The vertical cylinder and the oblique surface of the elliptical cone on the roof are encased in a glass wall.
