Chapelle de St-Loup

3:35 PM










Sometimes I it drives me nuts when buildings are sculptural for no reason other than to look good... but, in the case of chapels, I don't mind it... Chapels are meant to be icons for both their congregation and neighborhoods, so a distinctive design can often aid in defining the building as an icon (but, not a false idol!). This small chapel by Local Architecture manages to be both sculptural and simplistic, offering a meditative place for worship. The use of a solitary interior material helps to tone down what could otherwise be an overly ambitious form.

Personally, I think this is a fantastic project...
