Close up of liturgical center
Baptismal font to the extreme left, chairs for the minister on the right, and table and pulpit in the center.
The chapel is a simple rectangle focusing on a large free-standing cross with a pulpit to the right and communion table to the left. The natural light is provided by narrow slits in the two upper rectancles and ceiling.
Entrance to Buddhist temple
At the bottom of the stairs a Buddhist temple with traditional lattice and wooden timber work covered with vermillion paint.
Again one finds oneself between a straight and curved wall.
Behind the vermillion screen is the central Buddha.
Nishi-suma Lutheran Church
Tadao ando, architect. The windows in the form of a cross provide the image of the cross on the wall behind the liturgical center.
The table, pulpit and font are of typical minimalist Ando.
One last adoring look for Ando fans.
A floor to ceiling window illumines the chapel with very spare pews and liturgical furniture which constitute typical Ando minimalism. Concrete and steel are all that are needed for this aesthically elegant interior.
