    spooky interior

  • Rui Agnelo

    are there any sections and exterior photos available?
    i really like the atmosphere, very inspired by tadao ando.

  • kristy

    looks very similar to Pekka Pitkänen’s Chapel of the Holy Cross finished back in ’67.

  • inavars

    can the seating get any more uncomfortable!?

    • Ricardo Amado

      I know it might not seem so, but the seatings are actually very comfortable.

    • helen

      why does seating in a church need to be comfortable anyway..? so one can fall faster asleep during the sermon?

      i think this building gives us a good sense of what a modern church might convey in terms of atmosphere. and just the general direction. of meditation rather than preaching.

  • Alexis

    It reminds me of the chapel from La Tourette by Le Corbusier… but still so far from it.

  • Diego Ortuzar

    NICE !!

  • Nina

    that low window in the first photo reminds me of Alvaro Siza’s Marco de Canaveses Church. what do you guys think?
