Landscape Competition Chan-Chan 2006 - La Libertad , Peru

ARCHITECTUM 's initiative to organize this contest of ideas first appeared from the necessity of celebrating such an important historic site as The Chan Chan Citadel,Peru, through the construction of a Beach Lodge; a new style of accommodations which differs from the classic folkloric resort or theme hotel. The building would "celebrate" the natural scenario more than "distract" with its own facilities.

The proposal had to show a contemporary and accurate image that represented the actual spirit of the present times, but taking into consideration the usual economics of resources and the most suitable materials. It also had to be of the lowest physical investment possible.

Furthermore, the project needed to include issues such as an ecological conscience, as well as respect for the landscape and the environment.
