5.  SAINT BARTHOLOMEW’S CHAPEL, SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA

Kevin deFreitas Architects have completed a new chapel, built on the Rincon Indian reservation in San Diego County in California.Catholic/Christian church located in the picturesque back country of San Diego Co. the very small historic St. Bartholomew’s Chapel was destroyed by a wildfire that ravaged the Rincon Indian reservation in late 2007.  Only the original adobe bell tower and original Mission bell survived, which would become the anchor element in the redesign planning. The new design was conceived to reverently knit together “past” and comfortable traditions, while acknowledging and offering something relevant to current and future generations. Thus, emulating or recreating the past literally was not a project goal.  Native American as well as Catholic/Christian symbols and metaphors were referenced in every design element; plan, section, and elevation as a way to infuse meaning into the chapel on several layers.

8. PARISH CHURCH OF SANTA MONICA, MADRID, SPAIN

Architects Vicens & Ramos, who designed this church, say: “The project whose is already completed is the third proposal. The first two were rejected and it’s a shame. I think that they were much more interesting, at least from the point of view of adherence to the liturgical rules of Vatican II.” The complex is made up of two independent buildings: one houses the church, strictly speaking, and the daily chapel, in a structure with large steel porticoes, while a second block with a structure of reinforced concrete accommodates the housing and parochial rooms. Both are tied together by a continuous corten steel skin which, as a whole, creates a piece that gives an image of great unity and rotundity.
