St Loup Chapel in Pompaples

For the conversion of their mother house, the deaconesses of St Loup organized a competition in which constructional modifications to their existing chapel were foreseen. A temporary house of worship was required for the intervening period, therefore. The proposed form of construction – with folded laminated wood sheeting – allowed the spatial enclosure, the load-bearing structure and the internal finishings to be combined in a single layer. Since the interior was meant to suggest a traditional chapel, the overall line of the zigzagging folded walls is slightly curved on plan, so that the space narrows towards the altar, while at the same time increasing in height.
