Zhongguancun Christian Church by gmp architekten
GMP Architekten, a Hamburg based architectural practice organization has designed the Zhongguancun Christian Church. Located in Beijing, China, the project features various vertical fins that run along the perimeter of the building. The result is unique homogeneous skin formation creating an atmosphere generating special lighting inside the church hall. It matches the ecclesiastical functions of the space.
Religious sects around the world seem to be more and more concerned with the modern images and they want to draw the younger generations. Zhongguancun Christian Church provides one of the latest contemporary designs that would see the light of the day.
Basic feature of the design is the light flowing and streaming through the hall of the church. Shape of the body of the church not only allows slight line to the south media façade of the Cultural Tower but it also emphasizes the special function in contrast to the commercially used building surrounding the church.
