yet another basilica

KIRCHE_03

O. M. Ungers and Richard Meier play the primary instigators in terms of language of this basilica – minus the Doric impluvium entry courtyard, of course.  The front elevation/plan drawing shows shadows that hint at both wormseye and oblique axonometric projections.  Structure and tectonics play a central role where pipe and wide flange columns slide back and forth next to one another, while small circular side chapels cut into the deep poche of the stone walls.
