Interfaith Chapel


As the graduate program at Waterloo is a selfguided thesis, this final undergraduate studio is used to qualify the students for graduating into the field of architecture. a comprehensive combination of both technical and design skills, this studio is the cumulative result of the undergrad program. Incorporated into the final product was a detailed technical report that integrated structure, mechanical, and sustainable systems into the design.

This interfaith chapel seeks to create intimate spaces across differing scales via a host of techniques including materials, light, and texture. Using a system of wooden slat cladding, spaces of varying porosity are created. A further analysis of adjacencies also occurs as each interior space has a corresponding exterior.
