The Architectural Complex of Our Lady of Caravaggio Church in Porto Alegre, Brazil, arises with the objective of establishing an important connection that must exist between spatial experience and spiritual experience. For this the program includes a Church, which is the architectural protagonist of the ensemble, making use of materials reminiscent of Brazilian architecture. A Community Center to serve the needy community in slums close to the site. The last building is a retreat house that aims to finance social actions and maintain the conservation of spaces.
