The Rumi Llanqha Cultural and Interpretive Center refers to the stone in the pink city, this natural and significant element as the Tinajani stone forest that surrounds Lampa with its voluminous monumentality. Now being represented as the main project strategy, this time to shield the historic center of Lampa from contemporary constructions that damage its historical composition, either due to its height, materiality or its composition.

It is from there the importance of the empty terrain that is between a historical and a contemporary fabric. Having a possibility for the project to be an edge for the contemporary fabric and on the side of the historic center to generate an architectural silence; with the continuity of the Lapean atmospheres, this through the project spaces for which compositional factors were used, the genetics of the mansions, the colonial street conditions, the route of catumbas and the monumental buildings of Lampa.

In the same way, the project is invisible towards the historic center; An imaginary line was projected that has as its origin the reference point with the smallest visual angle of the main square, this is projected from the ground level of the roof of one of the 5 colonial houses that constitute our immediate surroundings. Resulting in a guideline that will build the height limit at the time of projecting the new interpretation center.

According to the jury:
“The Project stands out for the clarity of the formal operations and materials involved in the constitution of the historical case of lampa with new programs, highlighting the proposal of the volumes inserted in its interior and its predominance of the mass over the void. It also stands out in the quality of its representation, both in its perspectives and in its axonometric and conceptual diagrams. ”
