Mandi's Chapel Named Top Religious Building

 
 

The beauty and wonder of north Florida has been recognized by the Florida Chapter of The American Institute of Architects (AIA Florida) in naming Mandi's Chapel as the top religious building and ranked second overall building in the AIA Florida, Florida Architecture: 100 Years 100 Places competition.


A partial note from the architect: (to read the article in it's entirety, please click the link below)

"The chapel was conceived to be spatially inspiring with steep-angled roofs reaching toward the heavens. It was important that all the materials used to construct the chapel would be natural wood indigenous to the area and that the chapel be seen as a pavilion hovering over the lake with unobstructed views to the panoramic splendor of its natural surroundings. Therefore, the walls were composed of glass, the roof and floors constructed of natural southern pine, and the structure be considered such that the observer would feel comforted by the many branches that unfold to create shelter in its simplest form.

The apse, which has the sole purpose of containing the memorial to Mandi Petway, is semicircular in form and commands the most spectacular views toward the infinite horizon and the setting sun. A simple cross hangs from the geometric center of this space over a glass-inscribed pedestal marking the presence of Mandi’s spirit. The building itself speaks quietly on its own behalf in support of its mission."


Mandi's Chapel was given in memory of Mandi Petway by her parents, Tom and Betty Petway.  Mandi's Chapel was designed by John Zona, AIA.  Mandi's Chapel was designed to be a public yet sacred place.  Thank you for your vote!
