No, this is not what typically comes to mind when you think of a chapel. Mexican design firm¬†Fernando Romero Enterprise (FREE) has won a contract to design a church in the Miami area based on the pleated fabric gown of the Lady of Guadalupe. In the interior of the structure, small sanctuaries will be framed inside each pleat. Each will contain an effigy of one of the other Latin American virgins. Said the architects, “We preferred to open the proposal to other Latin American cultures as well, having represented all the 27 Latin American virgins.”
