Cathedral Proposal

Competition Proposal

This project was a sketch for a competition entry for the a new Cathedral in Tijuana Mexico.  The design is modeled on traditional Spanish Colonial architecture which is found throughout Mexico and Central America.

The church sits behind a large forecourt which is open to the public for events and liturgies.  Offices for the diocese and cathedral occupy spaces on the arcades around the courtyard.

A large daily chapel and baptistery flank the main entrance.  A large pontifical sacristy and adoration chapel sit next to the sanctuary.

At the rear of the block the residence of the cathedral priests and archbishop are situated around a peaceful internal courtyard.
