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.

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.

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.

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.

This project built in La Laguna (Tenerife), was thought to be a space that incites reflection, a meditation space, a intrinsic place, mystic, a MEETING POINT BETWEEN DIFFERENT CULTURES. A place where a person of any race, character or belief, can go to find himself in the temple, or join with other people in the cultural center.
