Helsinki ist 2012 die Design-Hauptstadt der Welt (!),
die Kapelle ist ein Teil des Programms
"Kamppi Chapel of Silence, opened in June, has already turned out to be a hit destination of the WDC Helsinki 2012. The wooden chapel, located next to Narinkkatori in the center of Helsinki, has been visited more than 40 000 people.
The Chapel is meant for everyone, it is an open place for both silence and discussions. There are no religious services organised in the Chapel. The Chapel was created as a part of the WDC Helsinki 2012 programme and it is an excellent example of service oriented design. The Chapel has also awakened a lot of attention abroad. In fact, the building received the Chicago Athenaeum International Architecture Award 2010 before it was completed. The Kamppi Chapel of Silence is designed by a Finnish architect agency K2S architects Ltd." (Zitat von der WDC-Seite)
