Chapel Schaufeljoch in Tyrol, Austria by AO Architekten

Designed as a chapel in memoriam of companions of Dr. Heinrich Klier and situated directly on a ridge in the Schaufeljoch region, this raw concrete and steel building displays the elements of a chapel reduced to its classical shape and thus creates a space of calm, contemplation  and remembrance in the midst of a lively ski circuit.

Opened up towards the ridge on both sides and facing the mountains and the panorama, the chapel – with its solid pillars – fades out the events on the pistes and directs one’s attention to the tranquility and vastness of the alpine landscape which firmly roots the little chapel due to its reduction in shape and matter as well as the roughness of its surface.

The oratory serves as a reflection of the dialectic between the vastness of space and the connectedness to the site and its history.
