Contemporary Chapel

Cherry Blosson Pavillion (2008)

By amid


Our proposal for the Fiesta del Cerezo is a hybrid between a man-made cavern with large openings to let light in, amongst cherry trees in bloom, and high-technology scenic machinery, both solid and inexpensive, in plain view for everybody.


A church for pilgrims, a chapel, a lay Ronchamp, a San Baudelio de Berlanga that floats among the landscape, a Saint Chapelle in Paris that is raised from the ground and that makes the ascension to the main hall a spectacle for the senses and a tool to become one with the surrounding landscape. A building that can remain closed for months and opened for the day or for the Otoñada (autumn season), in the same way as a church on a pilgrimage day. It cannot be called a theatre or an auditorium any longer.J3B
