Description Change this

This religious complex is an expression of contemporary minimal architecture for the city of Modena (Italy), where simple lines, soft light, white concrete, and stone bring a sense of beauty and mysticism. The bell tower within the church and the churchyard are shaping the space for the community. The architectonical elements encourage the spirituality rather be monumental. In fact, a "ring of light", on the perimetric walls of the building, visible just from the inside, brings symbolically the visitor to the goodness. The cover becomes dematerialized and the design of the liturgy is not just focused on the altar but promotes the community assembly.
