Meditation Chapel in the Park

Bc. Nikol Sládková


We live in a world where our thinking is influenced by technology and the stereotype of life. Our pace of life is accelerating, due to stress we lose the ability to concentrate. The goal of the project is to create places that break the stereotype and offer the opportunity to stop, leave the material world, close in on yourself. The set of six meditation chapels is designed as part of the urban study of the Mariánské Hory in Ostrava. Due to the nature of the function, the environment of the park was chosen, which is linked to important places in the territory by compositional axes. Sinking the chapel into the ground is a metaphor for digging into your mind while meditating. The shape of the building offers both a sense of privacy and security, plenty of light and air.
