Chapel of Life
Xinhui, Jiangmen China
By Joshua LAU + Will WONG
The Chapel of Life and the wellness farm is a missionary project initiated by Will WONG in collaboratin with Joshua LAU/OPUX to create a facility for well-being and spiritual experience in Xinhui, where people from the city would find this place a retreat, surrounded by tranquil natural environment and organic farm. The design of the building implies the crucifix as the road towards God and Heaven, where the main building consists of ancillary facilities as well as dining hall connected out to one end a personal bamboo contemplation space and open chapel where prayers extents towards the water pond that irrigates the crops on this land. The open chapel is designed as a half-pavilion-half-building to provide an experience connected with nature, constructed of two cubic spaces, with one turned 45 degrees forming the main chapel space as well as four contemplation spaces at the edges, and reduced into a frame and four walls construction, a space that is abstract, surreal and undefined.

生命禮拜堂和養生農場是一個宣教項目由Will WONG與Joshua LAU/ OPUX合作發起，在新會創造一個福祉和精神體驗的設施，那裡人們會發現這個地方是一個樂園，完全被寧靜的自然環境和有機農場擁抱。 建築的設計意味著十字架作為通往上帝和天堂的道路，其中主要建築包括輔助設施和餐廳以及連接到一端的個人竹沉思空間和開放教堂，人們朝向水池祈禱讓祝福延伸水裏灌溉這片土地上的作物。 開放的教堂被設計為半亭半建築，提供與自然相關的體驗，由兩個立方體空間構成，一個翻轉45度形成主要教堂空間以及四個邊緣的沉思空間， 縮小成一個框架和四面牆結構，一個抽象的，超現實的和未定義的空間。
