这座新的教堂建在一个既存的婚礼举办设施的花园内,周围被树木环绕。

该建筑看起来像一个简单的白色盒子漂浮在空中,与既存设施和谐统一。另一方面,建筑师将花园中的树木作为设计主题,并提出了随意设置树形柱的礼拜堂设计,树形柱由角铁制成。

具体而言,建筑师利用四个90毫米×90毫米×7毫米的L形角铁和四个75毫米×75毫米×6毫米的L形角铁组成一根十字形的柱子。建筑师想要创造出分支向上伸展的柱子,描绘出树木柔和的曲线。建筑师在两种不同尺寸的角铁上应用了两种不同的曲线,创造了两种类型的树形柱。建筑师想通过旋转柱子并将其设置在整个空间内,创造出不同的外观效果。树形柱不但是装饰品,也是重要的结构构件,能够承担建筑的垂直荷载和风压。

每一根树形柱都因伸展的角铁分支而与其他柱子保持着一定距离。这对于建筑结构来说也是很合理的。

大自然森林中的树木在不同的条件下也是彼此保持一定的距离。刚性角铁制成的柱子分支的形状与距离创造了沉默感与紧张感,非常适合婚礼教堂这样的新人们宣读结婚誓言的地方。

This is a new chapel built in the garden of an existing wedding facility which is surrounded by trees.

The building looks like a simple white box floating in the air to be in harmony with the existing facility.  On the other hand, I took in the trees in the garden as a design motif and proposed a chapel with randomly placed, tree-shape columns using angle irons.

In detail, I gathered eight angle irons composed of four 90 x 90 x 7mm L-angle irons and four 75 x 75 x 6mm L-angle irons to create a cross-shape column.  I intended to create a column that branch out up above depicting gentle curves of a tree.  I applied two different curves for both size L-angle irons and created two types of tree-shape columns.  I intended to create various looks by rotating the columns and placing them throughout the space.  The tree-shape columns serve as decorations as well as important structural elements that receive the building’s vertical load and wind pressure.

Each tree-shape column is placed a decent distance from each other by their branched out, angled irons.  It is also rational for the building structure.

The forest in the nature also consists of trees that keep certain distances from each other under different conditions.  The distances and shapes of the columns’ branches made by rigid angle irons created the silence and tense that is appropriate for a place like a wedding chapel where people make their vows.
