    Description :

    “The convent is ‘posed’ in the savage nature of the forest and grasslands which is independent of the architecture itself. The façades shall remain in rough concrete, the several infillings being painted with whitewash. The walls of the church shall be in ‘banchage’…The roof of the convent itself, like that of the church, will be covered with a thin layer of earth loft to the viscissitudes of the wind, birds and other carriers of seeds, assuring both water-tightness and isothermic protection.”
