Description Change this

The design, based on the interpretation of the second Vatican Council, approaches the religious space considering the celebration-assembly relation and the religious meaning of "everywhere". The building offers different types of public space. Seating for youngers, on the perimeter, and an intimate porch for older and families. Its materiality, made by the contrast between local bricks and exposed concrete, offers an interesting combination and relation within the urban contest and the perception of the interior light.
