Mario Botta Architect S. Angeli Chapel Mount Tamaro

Recently I visited the S.Angeli Chapel designed by Mario Botta on Mount Tamaro,Switzerland.
The Chapel was designed and built between 1990 and 1996.

A lot was written about Mario Botta inspired by Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn,
Two influential architects who worked in the twentieth century

What do you think was the inspiration source for Mario Botta’s S.Angeli Chapel round openings?
In The following posts I’ll try to find out what are Mario Botta’s  sources of inspiration .

    I would like to use your image of Mario Botta’s Monte Tamaro chapel showing the repeating openings in an upcoming book titled AEROFORM: The influences of aerodynamics on architectural form. Please let me know if this would be Ok?
