The church room with liturgical center
MetadataShow full item record
Seen from the choir the front of the church room contains many elements with the tapestry behind the altar giving focus to the room. The functions left to right: (half) of the altar for the reserved host, behind which is a small sacristy, and then the choir. There are chairs for guests with their backs to the wall of the choir. Then a potted palm to bring a bit of nature into the brutalism of the church followed by a liturgical center with a vivid tapestry to emphasize the altar as the focal point of worship. Above, concrete "hangings" direct the light of the clerestory to the altar. The cross hangs in the midst of the wash of light from the clerestory. Further to the right is the display of the Gospel on the front of the pulpit with a small alcove for a collection of unintended elements, partially hidden by an attempt at an alcove.
