Bruder Klaus Chapel by architect Peter Zumthor
Bruder Klaus Chapel (by Peter Zumthor) is a small chapel sited on a lonely paddock of a small provincial German village. The Chapel was constructed in reverse, burnt from the inside out. The process involved attaching 112 tree-trunks together in a spiral form and constructing a concrete shell built up around the logs. The logs were then set on fire and burnt out to form a hollow interior with an opening to the sky.
