Zhuting Church in Zhuzhou, China by Pu Miao Architecture

Friday, January 24th, 2014

Article source: Pu Miao Architecture

Located next to a mountain path, this rural church responds to its narrow site with a zigzag spatial sequence that generates the much needed transitional space from the profane to the sacred. Inside, a unique sacred space is created through pairing the chapel with an outdoor space which contains the altar.

Hattiesburg House of Prayer in Mississippi by Suzane Reatig Architecture

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

Article source: Suzane Reatig Architecture

The House of Prayer is a new church designed and constructed for a small congregation in Hattiesburg, MS. From the front entry, sanctuary doors open to a light-filled room with polished concrete floors and warm wooden pews. A large, almost ethereal pendant light hangs above the altar and reflects the bright white walls of the sanctuary. The ceiling is comprised of steel joists with track lighting. Large storefront windows sit high above the floor allowing light into the space while still making the room feel private. Crepe myrtle trees can be seen out the rear window.

ST. URSEN CATHEDRAL in SOLOTHURN, SWITZERLAND by Flury und Rudolf Architekten AG

WSDG Acoustic Expertise Aids Comprehensive Restoration Effort

SOLOTHURN, SWITZERLAND:  Begun in 1762, and completed in 1773, the St. Ursen Cathedral has long-served as the focal point for both worship and tourism in Switzerland’s most significant baroque town. In early January 2011, a mentally disturbed person set a fire which wreaked massive damage throughout the Cathedral’s 2000 + sq. ft. congregation hall.  When the smoke cleared, the entire white/gray lime rock interior, which had shone like marble for centuries, was encrusted with a foul grayish residue.  The Cathedral was closed to the public and a plan for restoration developed.

Santa Maria del Mar Basilica in Cancun, Mexico by sanzpont [arquitectura]

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Article source: sanzpont [arquitectura]

Design Concept.

Santa Maria del Mar is one of the oldest virgin avocations. She isn’t related to any apparition; instead she relates with the need that marines and their families who stay on land feel for having the highest protection from heaven. Stella Maris, Star of the Sea is how they call her since ancient times.

North Presbyterian Church houses a unique congregation in urban Cleveland. With dwindling or relocated congregations, urban churches from a variety of denominations (including Presbyterian) are being closed and decommissioned at a staggering rate within Cleveland’s urban core. With a congregation from diverse socioeconomic and spiritual backgrounds, North Church has fought to continue its ministry within the blighted neighborhood it calls home.

San Giacomo Church in Ferrara, Italy by Miralles Tagliabue EMBT

Saturday, August 3rd, 2013

Article source: Miralles Tagliabue EMBT

The Parish complex of San Giacomo is proposed as a catalyst for the area in which it is introduced, creating a new fulcrum that is capable of creating identity within the local community by promo-ting socialization, education and interaction. The building is de­signed to have a welcoming presence that is open to the people, doing so through the use of lightweight organic architecture that contrasts with the robust and compact materiality of the histori­cally important preexisting Ferrara.
