Virgin of the peace Temple

Architectural desing and construction control

Location: Los castillos, León

Year: 1998

The temple forms part of a large social complex located in a poor area at the north of the city. This new building replaces an old and minimum structure where the mass ceremonies were done. The new building has a stepped cover towards the west to allow natural light inside the temple and leaves all the west end of the plot to create a new public plaza and garden. The building has two main materials: block concrete of sand color and steel structure with white finished. The internal space is used not only to celebrate religious ceremonies but also as a multi-purpose hall.
