TITICACA

CHAPEL

Brief:

Quechua Architecture Competition, Q.A.C., welcomes all participants to take part of this challenge which consists in presenting and developing a project that explores diverse fields of thinking and design. The challenge for this occasion is “TITICACA CHAPEL”.

In any corner of the world where there is a civilization, you can find a sacred place related to the expression of its faith. Further to the various forms of expression of each culture, its identity is defined by its constructions. Temples, Pyramids, Cathedrals, Mosques, Synagogues, Pagodas, Basilicas, Chapels, etc., are some of the masterpieces that express something beyond humanity, the divine.

TITICACA CHAPEL is a sacred place, designed for the faith of the world to be freely expressed. A place that can welcome visitors from all over the planet and through its energy provide an intimate place for reflection and meditation. A multi-cult space that understands the conditions of the site and defines the characteristics of the divine.

The island of the sun, located on Lake Titicaca, has been a place of settlement for numerous cultures. In this sacred place exists more than 180 Inca ruins, and it is considered the birthplace of the Inca culture. Currently, the Island of the Sun is visited by travelers from all over the world who seek to find in its history a place of encounter, meditation, reflection, and faith for humanity.

Q.A.C. thanks and admires all designers who are willing to take the challenge.
