Nazca Observatory

This hypothetical competition was promoted by ARQUITECTUM. The goal was to evaluate the possibility of installing an observatory that serves not only as a tower, or overlook, from which to observe the beautiful scenery of the Pampas of Nazca, but also to provide a transitory hostel aimed at tourists (local and foreign) who carry out excursions towards the desert and wish to stay overnight. The requirements were to propose a structure with a minimum height of 100 linear meters and count with a basic program occupying a constructed area approximately 1,000 mts2.
