Description   The Tokyo Church of Christ's main chapel is located on the upper level; its vaulted interior form, translated to the exterior, creates a symbolic skyline within the busy cityscape. Daily use program elements are located on the lower (street) level. The exterior glass skin, reminiscent of a traditional Japanese wood and paper shoji screen, is comprised of two separate layers of glass. The outer layer is translucent glass, and the inner layer is a sandwich of glass and glass fiber tissue. The screen encloses the space with a warm and silent light. The double layers shut out city noise, making the chapel a tranquil, meditative, and sacred space.
