Editor’s pickIn Ukraine, a chapel inspired by tradition

09-07-2018

Surrounded by a pinewood forest and inspired by traditional Ukrainian wood church towers, the Chapel of the Intercession may be small, but it imbues visitors with a sense of elation.

Structured like a traditional frame but enclosed by tilted walls that meet at the top in an octagonal shape, the chapel is covered with shingles, with the glass door inviting the outdoors in.
