Asymmetric Church

Munich based Architecture studio Meck Architekten has designed a rectangular church in the town of Poing, Germany. The church is dedicated to a German priest Seliger Pater Rupert Mayer who was a leading figure in the Catholic resistance to the Nazis in Munich. The structure is topped with a ceramic crown clad with 15,000 white, three-dimensional tiles and the entire sculptural roof is clad in reflective white tiles. The ceramic tiles used to clad the building have a similar form to that of the building's roof, with each individual tile divided into four geometric sections. The roof is formed of four geometric elements that give the building a sculptural appearance. Three of the roof's geometric forms contain skylights, with the highest one directly illuminating the altar. One corner of the building rises higher than the other and is topped with a cross and a weathercock. The church in itself is large enough to accommodate 220 worshipers.
