89. st. ignatius
seven bottles of light in a stone box is one metaphor used to describe this small chapel, a humble masterpiece by steven holl.
light and shade are the protagonists of the story inside.
the two opposites come together and dance throughout the hours of the day and the turns of the weather, never the same, always remarkably beautiful and captivating.
filters of contrasting colors cast tension and release in the small, intimate spaces.
you are reminded that walls can sing and even the darkest of spirits can be uplifted by the quality of a space, if you open your eyes and allow your heart and mind to connect and receive the beauty of this world.
