The new church of Cinisi will be an unforgettable and extraordinary physical icon, a translation of the feeling of its origins: a large family of wiry stems, like a cloud of souls, a crowd of people huddled together, lives on site thickening around an ideally aggregating center. The progressive thickening of the elements culminates into a dense and compact architectural core, the proper body of the church, in which the stems seem about to dive or from which, depending on interpretation, seem to have been carved out.

In 2009, on the initiative of Bishop Santier, the diocesan association of Créteil, supported by the Chantiers du Cardinal, opted for an ambitious project to expand the cathedral of Notre- Dame de Créteil. Conceived by Charles-Gustave Stoskopf, holder of the Prix de Rome, this architecture is typical of the 1970s when “the theology of blending-in” prevailed at the time. It is part of the contemporary heritage of the City of Créteil.

Church building for the Moravian Church Amsterdam South East
Wi Eegi Kerki (Surinamese for Our Own Church) is a beacon of light in this part of Amsterdam (Bijlmer), the poorest part in town. The yellow-white church emits light permanently. Inside however, the exact opposite happens. The sunlight – or if you prefer, the moonlight – enters the church through a huge hidden skylight. The reaction of one of the visitors: “It feels like a higher power watches over you.”

Here, our goal was to go beyond the traditional and to create a building in conformity with religious norms, all the while being modern, imposing and reflective of the spirit of the city. A building structure with character, both simple and intricate in its design details, with an emphasis put on natural ventilation. The project was built as a part of our community projects initiatives (donating the architecture) with the help of local residents.

In response to the need to recover Ecuador’s sites listed as cultural heritage, our professional services were hired by the Coordinating Ministry for Heritage and Culture in order to create an architectural design for a roof for the old church of the city of Baños. These sites constitute a key factor for local and regional development, as well as for that of the country in general.
The old church in Baños is located next to the current Municipality and dates from 1788. It was renovated after the earthquake of 1797, but it was finally reduced to ruins by another earthquake in 1949.

In March 2009 schneider+schumacher won a competition run by the Förderverein Autobahnkirche Siegerland e.V, which was founded for the specific purpose of establishing an Autobahn church.
The initiative for this project came from Hanneliese and Hartmut Hering, after having visited an Autobahn church in south Germany. Just one glance at the map revealed that a place like this was lacking in the entire Siegerland area, and consequently also along the very busy A 45.

In the town of Sant’Angelo dei Lombardi, all around the Church of Santa Maria, the time has crystallized impeding the regular process of \”urban healing\”: in November 23rd 1980 the collapse of the structure, which occurred during a celebration, has swept 40 people; since then the area has been gradually reabsorbed by nature… Beyond Ruins is an urban workshop with the aim to explore new prospects for recovery, seeing the temporary like a precious opportunity for a resilient existence and in the landscape care a unique opportunity to rediscover the territorial identity.
