Undurraga Devés Arquitectos - Auco Chapel, Los Andes, V Region, Chile

In a quite desert area this project started defining its site, an excavation. Then, the four beams, concrete plans allow the connection with the exterior in the basement, and support the magic box in the interior. The wood on the nave´s walls reinforces the illusion of a floating volume, since you don´t perceive the concrete inside
