Capela de São João Batista, Vila Nova de Paiva, Portugal

Capela de São João Batista Vila Nova de Paiva

Designed by José Morgado the Capela de São João Batista project, Portugal, was born out of the desire and generosity of the people of the small village to build a temple dedicated to St John the Baptist. Its monolithic form of exposed concrete, torn by stereotomy and subtracted from the stylised form of the “house” shape, is intended to be the home of St John the Baptist
