1999 / Freiburg / Ecumenical Church Centre

For the town district of Freiburg Rieselfeld, a new ecumenical centre is proposed shared by the evangelical and catholic communities, including collective "Space for meditation", administrative areas and courtyard.
The interiors for the gathering spaces are non-hierarchically detailed. Inscribed with text and imagery, lightweight double skin walls of glass and timber veneer panels span tightly between solid ground and ceiling planes - a meditation on the tension between mass and the flight of thought.
