Archbrick Chapel on Mount Rokko Brick (Tadao Ando)

Product Description

Archbrick Tadao Ando concrete architecture series Size: 8 x 4.8 x 6cm Packaging size: 22.5 x 9.5 x 4cm Material: ABS Designed and packed in HK Introduction The chapel is an almost square concrete volume that is flanked by an adjoining vertical bell tower and a tunnel of translucent glass. To access the chapel one enters from a back exit of the hotel, past a small pond and into a long tunnel of frosted glass which is flooded with a milky white light. The end of the tunnel is open with a view of nature, but no sign of a chapel. A different kind of light sharply illuminates the altar area through a thin, elongated slot located at the junction of the wall with the roof. This feature allows an ever-changing play of light on the rough concrete surface, whose appearance changes according to the time of day and the day of the year.
