Memorial Site, 2010

This project reached the second place in the competition for the design of Peru´s Memorial Site, a space dedicated to the commemoration of the period of violence in the country and the dignification of its victims.

The designated land for the building is located on the slopes of the hills facing the pacific ocean in Lima.

The project is conceived as a monument. Instead of inserting a buiding in the landscape, we purposed to place a colosal staircase that follows the slope of the land. The whole program of the building is buried and its roof functions as an open and vivid public space, a platform for encounter and inclusion as well as a connection between the city and the beach.
