CHAPEL OF UNITY - Rwanda Chapel Competition

 

The Chapel is a symbol of unity.

Connecting the two ethnic groups.

Connecting the locals with their land.

Connecting this life with the divine.

The earth with the sky.

A perimeter wall, made of clay bricks produced from local soil and fired on site, forms the

atrium, nave and presbytery.

A wooden canopy provides shelter, allowing the light and rain to come in the chapel

through atriums.

Combined the two elements create a sense of belonging to oneself but also being part of

something greater; of this fertile land that has allowed generations of Rwandans to have a

life here.

Combined the two elements form the Chapel of unity.
