The Santuario Señor de Tula, a shrine that housed a contemporary chapel and some 18th-century ruins of San Miguel Arcángel church, was partially destroyed after the earthquake. Due to the severity of the damage, it seemed an obvious decision to start from zero while preserving the archeological remains. But how to go about building on the ruins of a ruin? With a shelter that adds to the many layers underneath it. A building that gives continuity to a country's architectural tradition. An homage to the freeform structures of Félix Candela. Poetic brutalism. A monument to the glory of human fragility. An open chapel.
