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.

COUNTRY 

We are students at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, we met a couple of years ago and started to collaborate as a result of this project as a development exercise in our practice. We are interested in generating our own discourse based on the theory and analysis by questioning the value of the building and experimenting in the process.

Thanks to the site proposal made by the Quechua team, the project became an opportunity to talk about Art in South America, in this case the proposal is nourished by the poem "De la casa arraigada" by Alfredo Silva Estrada (Venezuelan poet). We decided to participate in the edition "Titicaca Chapel" because the conceptualization of the Chapel seemed interesting to us; the value in its heights, its symbols and dimensions; it was the opportunity to put into practice the values that interest us.
