The sculpture of Apsis made of stone appears in urban space, the protective vessel of the church made of natural stone tells history – a special place – with age-long history. Genuine material bears information and curiosity. Path – forecourt and chamber of secrets open doors, no thresholds, zone of transition, of attunement – of accession – an invitation. warm light falls through selected spots into the joints soft shapes flow into the chamber and lead inside. The town stays behind. Tranquility – devotion – quiet words – quiet steps Burning candles under Madonna’s protection tell stories of people, their wishes, prayers and gratefulness. Daylight and moonlight fall through time windows of the past. It alternately meets present and future of day and year. Big arcades with glassy membrane promise much more – Come in – space – sanctuary – area of freedom The interior bereft of its skin and wooden sky during the last war characterized by reconstruction – wishes to absorb new things and to unite Roman-gothic centuries communicate with the here and now Surfaces of genuine materials – masterly assembled – interweave with space through light colours The sparkling mineralty of the depth of the plastering meets velvety stone and mat wood. Dimmed lighting falls through freely breathable glass Wonderful space, united, animated and conducted by people with genuine words. Spaces for devotion, church service, spiritual guidance, dialogue and encounter an oasis for culture and art a truly open church.
