Chapel of the Reconciliation- Bernauer Strasse August 12, 2006Posted by Amanda in Architecture/Design, Travel Diary.
I have uploaded some photos of one of my favourite places- the Chapel of the Reconciliation in Berlin
This chapel replaces a church that was blown up by the East German government in 1987. The church had stood in the death strip since the wall went up.
The chapel is circular and made of wood slats on the outside and rammed earth on the inside. The rammed earth contains rubble from the original church. The materials make it feel like a very natural place- they have only used natural materials for everything and it is an extremely peaceful environment.
