Meditation Chapel / Lee Eunseok + ATELIER KOMA

November 29, 2023 Hana Abdel 0

Existential Pilgrimage Space – The Meditation Chapel is less a place for traditional worship within an urban community and more a sanctuary for solitary individuals to savor their existence before the divine in nature, essentially a retreat from the city. It originated from the request for a small prayer space for these pilgrims. Hence, rather than mimicking the form of minimalistic architecture, which aims to strip everything down, the architect opted for functional simplicity, which is faithful to the role of a vessel that can hold the visitor’s existence.
