From Religiously Pleated Chapels to Egg-Shaped Chapels

This chapel architecture ranges from churches formed in the shape of eggs to others made completely without nails. Whatever the size or form, these places of worship certainly offer a memorable place to pray.

One chapel in Austria recently received a revamp, and designers are now incorporating an office space and cultural center to the area. This expansion demonstrates how these structures are being updated for more modern uses, while still retaining their original functions. Others were re-designed from buildings such as barns and converted into chapel architecture. The great thing about this is that the creatives behind the update still held onto the core structure, which forced them to create a distinct building through fusing the old with the new. Who knew places of worship could look so good?
