Light

Form and Order

Objective: For this project, Farmingdale State College wants a chapel designed on its campus.  They want it to be a spiritual place open to people of all different faiths to worship and reflect.  We were assigned to design an asymmetrical chapel and locate it on a public space.  We also need to incorporate creative concepts to control light inside the chapel.
