The Bruder Klaus Chapel in Germany by architect Peter Zumthor. Stunning. Mystical. Brilliantly conceived. Construction by local farmers began with a wigwam of 112 tree trunks. Upon completion of the frame, layers of concrete were poured atop the existing surface. The concrete set and inside, the wooden wigwam was lit ablaze, leaving behind a hollowed blackened cavity and charred walls with the texture of trees. Glass discs provide pinpoints of light throughout and the apex of the roof is open to the sky so rain or snow will fall at the alter. Gorgeous. The miracle of the actual.
