13 Escuela Francisco Arriarán
Gustavo Mönckeberg, José Aracena, architects.
Av. Matta 1089, Santiago.
Typical product of the aesthetics of these architects in their school designs for the private Sociedad de Instrucción Primaria or the public Sociedad Constructora de Establecimientos Educacionales, the Francisco Arriarán building represents the earnestness of the modern school, with its clean facade and repetitive windows for an even illumination inside the classrooms, the curved corner and the characteristic tower signaling the main entrance and the staircase, and its relation to the neighborhood from the distance.
