Chapel of the rational

project made by le truquôt for Thomas Payer.

This project envisions a small, geometric chapel that blends modern architectural elements with deep spiritual symbolism. Designed as a welcoming meeting space, the chapel provides a place for the community to gather, worship, and connect. Geometry plays a central role, with simple, symbolic shapes, while natural light is carefully directed to create a sacred atmosphere, especially at 11 AM on Sundays when divine light fills the interior.

The use of rough concrete enhances the contrast between light and darkness, deepening the space’s spiritual essence. The chapel’s suspended design evokes the crucifixion, symbolizing sacrifice and transcendence. The architectural journey moves from a solitary experience to a shared community gathering, offering a unique spiritual and architectural experience for all who enter.
