This new build wooden chapel was commissioned to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster. This chapel has been designed to serve as a reminder of the traumatic loss of a great number of rural settlements in Belarus and Ukraine.
The design draws inspiration from the rural wooden churches in Belarus, and aims to combine their traditional architectural language with contemporary building technologies and concepts. The materials palette was restricted to wood and glass to reflect the austere and tranquil beauty of traditional wooden churches.
