The Pilgrim Route / Mexico

Lookout by Alejandro Aravena

Every year, over 2,000 people go on a 100 km pilgrimage path near Guadalajara, during Holy Week. Municipalities along the route decided to give the pilgrims some service areas along this route, so the Secreaty of Turism of Jalisco comissioned these projects to a group of both mexican and international architects: Ai Wei Wei (FAKE Design), Luis Aldrete, Christ & Gantenbein, Dellekamp Arquitectos (featured on AD),  Elemental (featured on AD), Godoylab, HHF, Periférica and Tatiana Bilbao mxa.

By looking at the projects, you can tell they wanted this to remain simple, as structures that will remain abandoned most of the year and will age becoming part of the landscape.
