Chapel of Tears
by Atelier Poem

David Foessel

The chapel stands in solitude within the natural landscape and explores the basic hut archetype in a spiritual and sensitive way.

Mindful of the bond between architecture and territory, Atelier's poem gives a spiritual interpretation of the tiny wooden refuge that historically supports the hikers along the mountain paths. In fact, the project settled on the side of a stream, afford peace and relaxation along the nature trail that leads to the Cascade de Fontany in the French Alps.

This project has been longlisted in the small building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
