Capela

Braga / Portugal / 2020

Inserted in Teresa Gonçalves Garden of the Dst Group, in Braga, Portugal, Capela rests as a place for reflection, spiritual rest and natural surrounding contemplation.


The two volumes of concrete are interrupted by an incision, a free crossing, separating the divine spot from the human seat, not touching each other.


Inside, both plans are inhabited in a quiet way. One by a bench for contemplation and the other by a suspended cross of Christ.


At night, the beam of light, flowing through the opening and by the Uglass ends, transforms these concrete blocks into a light matter.
