THE MORNING CHAPEL (2018)
"(...) we decided to place our chapel exactly beside the longest path, that goes from Palladio's cloister to the lagoon. We wanted to create the impression of leaving behind the city and connecting with nature. The place was strongly influent in designing the chapel, being like a long wall that runs next to the main path. It is also similar to a gate that, once crossed, opens up to nature and Venice canals.
(...) our project, whose goal is to reflect peacefulness, safety and communion. (...) is made of an open linear element surrounded by nature, that benefits of the mild temperatures of the site allowing the visitors to spend time outside. (...) our project aims to spread joy, sense of community and union with the universe.
