Don’t have to be religious to appreciate this contemporary chapel

Most contemporary religious architecture on a modest budget leaves much to be desired but this angled mountain side chapel in El Salvador changes all that. The concrete structure utilizes an open air design for ventilation which especially useful in a tropical climate and the shape minimizes the chapels impact on the environment as to fit in rather than intrude…how refreshing. Apart from an the all concrete construction, two criss-crossing I-beams offer addition support and fittingly form a cross.
