A chapel built in the west African nation of Gabon was first constructed in a warehouse in Italy, then disassembled and shipped via container in Libreville, Gabon, where it was rebuilt on site in 25 days.

The Revival Sunset Chapel was rebuilt on site in just 25 days.

The Revival Sunset Chapel was designed by FATmaison of Bergamo, and mixes Cor-ten, u-glass, Carrara marble, black marble, stainless steel, aluminum, and pine wood. A more detailed description and photos appear here at ArchDaily: (visit link)
