Global Inspiration: San Bernardo Chapel, Argentina
The San Bernardo Chapel is a small masterpiece. A sensitive dealing with the location, an imaginative engagement with the principle of church construction, an equally simple as well as diverse and impressive shape, and a concentrated reduction are combined to make this worship place extraordinary. The chapel is located in the Argentine Pampa, neither running water nor electricity is available at the site itself. Whereas the exterior of the building is bordered by straight surfaces, the interior is characterized by curved ones.
