'Like Gaudí on steroids'

PRESIDENT'S MEDALS PART 2

COMMENDATION TOBIAS KLEIN THE BARTLETT SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE Synthetic Syncretism Tutors: Marjan Colletti, Shaun Murray The project's narrative background is based on the hybrid Cuban Santería religion - a mixture of Catholicism and Yorùbá tribal beliefs. Due to lack of burial space in the necropolis of the Cuban capital Havana, it proposes a ceremonial processional funerary route through the city. Slotted inside an existing cross-shaped courtyard, the inverted 'Chapel of Our Lady de Regla' acts as an architectural, ritual and cultural highlight. Formal and structural expression is provided by a series of designed Santerían relics held inside the sacristy - skeletal and visceral utensils, 3D-modeled and 3D-printed in order to perfectly fit 3D-scanned animal bones.
