A National Park-Inspired Chapel Composed of Branching Fractals by Yu Momeoda (5 pics)




Agri Chapel is located within a national park on the northwest coast of Japan’s island of Kyushu . The chapel was constructed by Japanese architect Yu Momoeda , who wanted to reflect the surrounding forest by bringing tree-like forms into the building.

To create the structure’s central dome, Momoeda stacked wooden pillars in the shape of simplistic tree branches. This nature-based support system imitates the branching fractals found in trees, with ascending symmetrical patterns spread throughout the light-filled space. (via Jeroen Apers )
