A place where you undergo the deprivation of existence, a lack of life, directness and the silence of welfare transmits a great deal of senses, perhaps, which words can not begin to describe, that is, the Mental Health Building Chapel, Boston Government Service Center -by Paul Rudolph. The space is entirely concrete material. This leads individuals to experimenting with the power of grey- concrete and the natural light -from the opening in the ceiling. The architect’s premeditation is certainly felicitous as the feeling of space gives chills with the monumentalization of concrete. It is possible to be perceptually far from our ephemeral lives in this space. This is by merit the fact that the space is a chapel, a place for prayer and a transition point.
