José Forjaz Arquitectos /  Mozambique MÃE AFRICA CHAPEL, MAPUTO, MOZAMBIQUE, 2004 This chapel, built for an order of the Catholic Church, is designed to accommodate a congregation of 50; it also functions as a religious centre for the adjacent theology college. The chapel is defined by three volumes, the lowest of which houses the entrance hall and sacristy. This leads to the double-height space of the congregation area, which looks on to the highest volume, where the altar is located. The protruding clerestory of this volume signifies the altar to the outside and draws light from above on to the wall behind it. SPIRITUAL PLACES 211
