Can you guess what is this bird like structure? Well, even I would have thought! Long time ago I read about a chapel on California's Sonoma coast, in a small town called Sea Ranch. I thought of visiting it when I drove north. Not very difficult to find, it is right there east-side of the Highway-1 in Sea Ranch.
When we think of architecture, first things that come to our mind are- long bridges, skyscrapers and some complicated buildings. I would never think of a little chapel resembling an angel's gown :) It is just one little room which can hold at most 40 people, with this fancy roof inspired by winged forms. It seems it was completed in a little less than a year by local artisans. The brightly colored stained-glass windows are beautiful.
Sitting in a peaceful setup this whimsical building is truly an architectural wonder. Just like a bird ready to take off!
