"The space has an organic form: a continuous, curving wall, raised seventy centimetres above the ground. The wall has an intense colour, with texts from the Requiem in many languages; the cemetery is a place for the multicultural population of Rotterdam. The roof floats like a folded sheet of paper above the space. The golden ceiling is artificially lit from below. An opening in the ceiling allows daylight to enter the chapel in a bundle of light that is further accentuated at the moment when incense is used." -- Houben, F. (2001). St. Mary of the Angels.
