Entry Description

The concept of this design, the Cloth of God, was inspired by a religious story. The structure of the Chapel tells the story of Exodus, from the Bible. The curved walls representing the parting of the Red Sea, and the rock is the end of the story that Mount Sinai and the Holy Land of Canaan, where the 10 Commandments and word of God were carved on stone. Here, according to our design, the curved walls and rock were fashioned to create a link between the building's external appearance and internal function.
