Point and counterpoint

As work on the visitor chapel at the
Abbey of Novy Dvur enters its final stages,
the dialogues embedded within its form
and fabric are already manifest: in the
counterpointing of crisp lines with sinuous
curves, of immaculate surface planes with
rustic courses of irregular stone and of the
interior play of direct sunlight with the
radiant effects of indirect light.
