All Saints Chapel
First, the baptismal font.
A source of pure water – the origin of everything.
Through the two river banks, one reaches the third – religare; the symbol/synthesis, the cross
Sky and earth – the vertical line
All men – the horizontal line
The internal space is created by displacing the sacred form.
The space is the movement.
The wood shelters, cuddles, protects.
Nature is around participating in solidarity.
