Entry Description

While wholly modern the design of the temple simultaneously represents the development of an architectural language with a long history, speaking of continuity but also renewal. The volumetric concept of the church derives from traditional church plans. The façade is a large flat wall, an emphatic and square plane, declarative of the otherness of the space within: the sacred space of the church interior. Above the altar is a high skylight whose light washes down behind an inclined panel cut into four sections to reveal a large Latin cross.
