St. Mary's Roman Catholic Cathedral, Tokyo
Kenzo Tange, architect. 1967-69.
Church interior with liturgical center
The floor to ceiling apex window of translucent marble compels the eye in it's downward sweep to cross and altar/table. While the church shape is contemporary the pews, liturgical arrangement, and furniture are quite traditional.
The massiveness of the doors reflects the scale of the great stone blocks of the base.
Reflecting Itallian precedent niches in the columbarium also bear photos of the deceased.
