After the Berlin wall was demolished in 1989, there are alot of effort to built another congregation point for the people.
Two young architects from Berlin, Rudolf Reitermann and Peter Sassenroth were appointed to built the new chapel.
The chapel is in oval rotunda layout with wood forming a cage surrounding the rammed earth core where the altar is.
