These are the first photographs from the 16th international architecture exhibition of the ‘asplund chapel’, designed by MAP studio and built by ALPI. It was conceived as a prelude to the exhibition. The structure displays Asplund’s architectural drawings for the original woodland chapel — located at skogskyrkogården cemetery in Sweden, south of Stockholm. The chapel measures 33 square meters, and the pavilion refers to both the architecture of the cemetery and the appearance of cabins in natural settings.
