All Saints Chapel by Gustavo Penna

August 6, 2012

Brazilian Architect Gustavo Penna designed the All Saints Chapel in Martinho Campos, Brazil.


Description from Gustavo Penna

First, the baptismal font.
A source of pure water – the origin of everything.

Through the two river banks, one reaches the third – religare; the symbol/synthesis, the cross

Sky and earth – the vertical line
All men – the horizontal line

The internal space is created by displacing the sacred form.
The space is the movement.

The wood shelters, cuddles, protects.

Nature is around participating in solidarity.
