Autobahn Church in Siegerland, Wilnsdorf by schneider+schumacher

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

Article source: schneider+schumacher

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.

Summer school Beyond Ruins in Sant’Angelo dei Lombardi, Italy by architetti + Paolo Mestriner

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

Article source: architetti + Paolo Mestriner

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.

Health Centre and Church Square in Heiden, Germany by THESING & THESING

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Article source: Thesing & Thesing Architekten BDA

In the centre of the Westphalian town of Heiden, Thesing & Thesing Architekten have paid homage to history in their creation of a new community space adjacent to the town’s historical church square. Bricks were chosen as the exclusive material for the roof and façade of the new health centre and the pavement of the square itself, an expression of the holistic approach employed by the architects. The bricks of the Hagemeisters’s “Heiden” variety, produced especially for the project, vary in colour from a deep reddish-brown to a violet-red with blue anthracite smoke marks and contribute a sense of lasting permanence. Until the 1970s, a neo-gothic church dominated the centre of the community. In the contours of the new medical building, the architects recall the proportions of both the original church’s architecture and that of even older urban structures taken from the town’s original land registers.

Article source: FèRiMa 

The crypt is the most obvious plot between east and west of the Mediterraneus, and enhances the union of the peoples of this sea. Intent in its construction were involved arabian, apulian-lombard stonemasons. The restoration project involved the interior of the crypt as a whole, from the columns to the capitals, to the creation of a new paving stone of Trani above crawl space, the recovery of the existing window frames and doorways, the system micro LED lighting.

The flow and rememberance: Drinking fountain and the bench in Tišina, Slovenia by Oblikovanje krajine Tanja Simonič Korošak s.p. & Skupaj arhitekti d.o.o.

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Article source: Oblikovanje krajine Tanja Simonič Korošak s.p. & Skupaj arhitekti d.o.o.

In a small village Tišina in the north east of Slovenia we designed an area of remembrance in the park by the local church. Instead of putting up two classical bronze heads in the memory of two local priests we managed to persuade the local community to build a small landscape feature in the park, around the existing trees Tilia cordata. This was the spot where one of the priests used to rest. Although the materiality of the concrete bench fixes this site yet the lavitating character shows some sort of immateriality.

RW Concrete Church in Byeollae, South Korea by NAMELESS Architecture

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Article source: NAMELESS Architecture

RW Concrete Church is located in Byeollae, a newly developed districtnear northeast Seoul, Korea. It evokes a feeling, not of a city already completed, but a building on a new landscape somewhere between nature and artificiality, or between creation and extinction. The church, which will be a part of the new urban fabric, is concretized through a flow of consecutive spaces based on simple shape, single physical properties and programs.

100 Walls Church in Cebu, Philippines by CAZA

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Article source: CAZA

What should a sacred space look like today? How should it work? Is there such a thing as a contemporary idea of the sacred?

In spite of a glut of typological clues we choose an anti-form. We did not want legibility. We sought to reinforce the experience of the search. Religions are defined by their mysteries and the stories of individuals who break through.
