Sunset Chapel, Acapulco



This is the newly completed Sunset Chapel in Acapulco, Mexico. Despite being newly built, it has already gained much attention for its interesting yet different design, which was the work of Esteban and Sebasti├ín Su├írez of Mexico City-based BNKR Arquitectura.



The project calls for the chapel to be eventually encircled by a “garden of crypts”, which are to interact with the naked concrete structure itself. The design is specially created with slanted walls and glass so that sunlight will reflect off the surfaces, changing as the day goes by – hence the name Sunset Chapel.

  1. It doesn't look much like a standard chapel at all. It would be interesting to see how the "garden of crypts" would work.
