After an avalanche destroyed the previous chapel in Sumvitg in 1984, the Disentis monastery held an architectural competition that Peter Zumthor won. The new chapel was completed in 1988 and its shape can be seen in many different ways: as half an infinity symbol, as a leaf, as a boat or a water drop. The wooden pillars appear to support the roof like a large canopy.
