Quechua Architecture Competition,Q.A.C., welcomes all participants to take the 1 week challenge which consists in presenting and developing a project that explores diverse fields of thinking and design. The challenge for this occasion is “Shadow Pavilion”.
Light has been through time an important guide for humanity, sometimes it has even been attributed as a god in some religions or the strength of legendary heroes; architecture is not strange to this history.
From the Pantheon to the La Tourette Monastery, light has been present in the mind of architects for centuries and to this day remains as important as has ever been. In this occasion, we select one of the most interesting cities where light is an important matter of studies for designers because of the position of the city in the globe: Quito, Ecuador.
Q.A.C. thanks and admires all designers who are willing to take the challenge.
Lucas Zabeu Cunha
I'm a brazilian architect graduated from FAU-USP in 2018, with an Erasmus year of studies in FAUP (Portugal). During my time as a student, I developed a special interest in exhibition space/museum design and in pursuing an architecture that embodies a statement through each design. Currently, I work as an assistant professor at Escola da Cidade and as an autonomous architect.
I have entered the Shadow Pavilion Competition with the main goal of submitting a proposal that made me visually and conceptually proud. Also, I think this is a great opportunity to
make my work visible across the iberoamerican countries, with hope that it can stimulate and take part in greater interaction and exchange in the architectural field on our region.
