Undulating Ceiling Chapels
The Prayer Chapel by Gensler Modernizes the Havens

Located at the Los Angeles University, the Prayer Chapel by Gensler is a stunning show of architectural design.

Despite its restricted space, the chapel is entirely curved without a single corner. The most striking visual feature of this chapel is its wooden ceiling that is made of wood harvested from olive trees. This construction boasts an uneven finish that gives the space character with its peeking opening that provides burst of light to the underground space.

The aestehtic of this construction essentially represents piety and humility, considering the designers used recycled wood. “The choice of such recycled wood is consistent with the poor and primitive sensibility of the chapel” says architect David Herjeczki. The interesting contrast of the wood with white space is visually appealing.
