Appreciation towards MARIO BOTTA ARCHITETTI for providing the following description:

七座塔楼环绕着教堂的中心体量,低矮的中心体量顶部消减形成天窗。为了纪念这一区域的工人文化,以前炼钢厂的烟囱被保存下来并增加了轻钢螺旋结构。教堂通过两侧的低矮建筑与城市环境衔接,其中包括大都会教廷办公室、公寓、工作日礼拜堂、长老会和各种教育娱乐设施及地下会议厅。

The central plan of the church is surrounded by seven towers added with lower bodies of the chapels that, through their truncated top, also act as skylights. As a reminder of the workers’ culture on this area, the smokestack from the former steelworks has been conserved and added with a lightening steel spiral. The church connects to the urban surrounding by the lower building running along two sides with offices of the metropolitan curia, apartments, a weekday chapel, a presbytery and various structures for education and recreation as well as an underground conference hall.

在内部,金字塔状的屋顶结构覆盖宽敞的大厅,中央空间通过实体结构与空隙交替,形成蕴含暗示意义的光影游戏。按照客户的要求,耶稣的面容被印在“耶稣裹尸布”(holy shroud)上,建筑巧妙地采用石材交织形成面部形象的纹理,并借助照射下来的日光进一步加强效果。

Inside, the pyramidal roof shape embraces the wide hall and through the alternation of solids and voids generates a suggestive play of light and shadow in the central space. Following the clients’ requests, the face of Jesus impressed on the “holy shroud” has been reproduced through a skilful interweaving of stone worked as a texture, enhanced by the daylight.
