The column has become merely a symbol that addresses culture and history
Extensive use of Concrete and glass in the pure form
Interior of the building are the form itself, ridicules the idea of masking it
Simplified, rectilinear forms and bare, naked concrete walls that define the spaces within
Style- element of Light, Water through concrete and glass

This chair was specifically designed for this church. The chair has a relaxing effect on its user, and echoes the brilliant inspiration of a church that Calls to awaken the senses and brotherhood with nature.
The chapel is placed on a mountain plateau central Hokkaido, the coldest region in Japan, where nature is wild.
The entire area, is green from spring to summer, and in winter strips turned into a white expanse.
In plan, the chapel is formed by the overlapping of two squares, one small and one large, and overlooks a pond made by diverting a stream that flows through the vicinity.
A wall independent, L-shaped around the rear of the building and on one side of the pond.
The chapel is entered from the back and along the path approaching the wall.
The murmur of the water takes visitors along the way, without, however, that they see the lake.
