Toulouse, France - 2007
The old church of Prouhile rises in the area where S. Antonio used to live on the Pirenei area. In the XIX century a cathedral started to be built in this area but it was left without the cupola and never finished some parts look finished but the walls the roof are completely rough. A strange sort of as found poetic... Even priest and sisters continue to live in this place and to “use” the non finished cathedral. The concept was to introduce the new requested elements leaving this idea of contrast between the new and the original. The garden is welcomes the pilgrims with a tree alley, different lines of vegetation defines quiet and isolated areas of meditation.
