greek cross synthesis

CHURCH_02

Taking cues from both the Nervi and Richardson projects, this church places a large tower campanile at the crossing.  The circular geometries owe more to Trinity, but the glass corners and spatial fluidity are direct quotes of St. Mary.  The tower transitions from a square at its base to a circle at the crown, paying homage to Nervi’s typical hyperbolic paraboloid surfaces.
