The present diploma thesis focuses on the subject of the ancient nazca geoglyphs and lines as world cultural heritage. The aim of this paper is the conception and design of a Visitor Center based on the following research question: What can geoglyphs teach architecture? The first part refers to the contextual explanation of the area. The relationship of topology, cultural heritage and tourism is illustrated. The management plan "Plan des Gestion para el patrimonio cultural y natural en el territorio de Nasca e Palpa 2012" as well as specific requirements to the Visitor center is presented. In the second part, the structure of the geoglyphs is analysed based on conceptual definition, typological alignment and geographical spread. Considering historical and cultural aspects an insight in research history of this site is given. A chapter gives an overview about the numerous potential meanings of the Nasca Geoglyphs. Despite the variety of research done over the years, particularly the work of the archeologists Clive Ruggels and Nicholas J. Saunders assist the architectural approach of this thesis to answer the hypothesis lined out in this thesis. In their 2012 study "Desert Labyrinth: lines, landscape and meaning at Nazca" they investigated the labyrinthine allignment and structure of the 450 km2 area. Understanding the labyrinthine structure work of the nazca lines as outstanding attribute of this cultural heritage is one key feature of this thesis. This structure, as an architectural category, is recorded on the conception of the visitor center. The third part presents the design and concept of the Nazca Geoglyph Visitor Center in special consideration of the contextual requirements of the labyrinthic arrangement.
