Details of High Altarpiece Zacatecas Cathedral
Gantous Arquitectos, the creator of the awarded Cultural Heritage project High Altarpiece Zacatecas Cathedral explained “Gantous Arquitectos in collaboration with Mexican sculptor Javier Marín, were the winners of a competition hosted by the State of Zacatecas in 2008 for the design and construction of a high altarpiece for the Zacatecas Cathedral, as well as the complete overhaul of its presbytery. The brief was to create a project which would complement the Cathedral’s magnificent 17th century Baroque façade, while balancing the austere neoclassical interiors. The resulting 10 meter wide by 16.7 meter high altarpiece is composed of geometric prisms rising from the highest platform of the ceremonial space. ” To learn more visit: https://competition.adesignaward.com/design.php?ID=37255
