CHAPEL OF THE SUN - POVOAÇÃO, AZORES - 2002
On a big natural basin facing the ocean, southeast of St. Michael is the first village of the island. From the mountain chain, in the interior, a series of hills stretch down like fingers on a towel, and receive the roads and groups of houses, ending in the vila and the port. In one of these hills, Lomba do Carro, an agrarian group of mainly elderly people needed a new church. The path of the sun trough the day and the year, rules the cycle of crops and the life of people. The altar is this light traced through the T shape cross across the interior basin.
