Located in the grounds of a luxury resort in Japan, the Ribbon chapel designed by Hiroshi Nakamura has been configured as a double spiral, formed of two separate stairways. in order to ensure sea views, the structure has been elevated above the trees, with an observation platform at a height of 15.4 meters offering sweeping views.
The video was shot for Aljazeera English and can also be found here. The Ribbon Chapel was named as a finalist at the World Architecture Festival awards in Singapore.
