If you find yourself ready to walk down the aisle, but aren't a wedding venue traditionalist or don't envision the big day in a grand religious setting or a tiny, adorable one, perhaps this chapel in Shanghai will suit you. Designed by local architecture studio Coordination Asia, this 4,197-square-foot venue pays homage to its setting—on the campus of a glass museum—with 3,000 triangular, vitreous panels in 65 colors. The structure takes its form—a circle set inside a square— from Chinese symbolism, where the circle is meant to signify fullness and unity and the square honesty and virtue. But no pressure or anything.
