Jubilee Church in Rome

I think this is a fairly good example of an impressive building yet modern for Church design.. There’s plenty of thought gone into it anyway & I believe it illustrates that there’s lots of scope for good contemporary Church architecture.

Jubilee Church

Designed by Richard Meier, the Jubilee Church located in Rome and serving more than 8,000 residents. As a church and community center, the Jubilee was
designed with modern formalism in mind but still adopts historical integrity in order to revitalize the decaying residential fabric.

The perceptual volume of the church is directly influenced by natural light since the zenith light and the glazed skylights between the successive shells are continually responsive to the changing pattern of light and shadow as the sun moves across its trajectory. According to the season, the weather, and the time of day, light is variously graduated down the inner surface of the shells thereby imparting to the church, the chapel and the baptismal fount a particular character.

As part of his thesis at Sapienza Università Di Roma, Roberto De Angelis highlights the Jubilee Church via extensive 3D animation. Captured from every conceivable angle with beautiful timelapses and dynamic breakaway animation.
