dgj009 Church Frankfurt Riedberg, Frankfurt am Main, Germany , 2007


The church investigates the tension between a simple exterior shape of a box, which refers to the urban context, and a complex inner organization. The block forms a strong counterpoint to the diversity and looseness of the new quarter Riedberg.

The interior, on the contrary, is defined by a complex, seemingly liquid space which provides an open and adaptive spatial framework to the changing community life.
