16 Jan A different church

The Chapel of Reconciliation in Berlin is definetely a celebration of simplicity!!

It’s a long time from the last time I was in Berlin. For those who have been there, they should remember the city vibes…a simple and relaxing lifestyle that is followed also in design and architecture. Looking back in the photo album I came across a chapel that still remains for me an exceptional example of contemporary church design. The Chapel of Reconciliation is both Germany’s first public rammed earth building in over 150 years and its first rammed earth church. But even more than that, the building is infused with a sense of history thanks to a thoughtful addition by architects Rudolf Reiterman and Peter Sassenrath: the rammed earth walls were made using clay mixed with the ground-up remains of the former church, which was built in 1894.

This modern structure embrace internal reflection and sharpen the focus of worshipers on the beauty of the building’s natural surroundings.
