Contemporary Church Architecture
by Edwin Heathcote

Contemporary Church Architecture aims to appeal not only to architects and clergy involved directly in ecclesiastical architecture but also other practitioners and those with a broader interest in cutting-edge design.

Contemporary Church Architecture covers the development of contemporary church design by looking at how the rational and the sacred can be reconciled and can inform one another.

It also outlines the main trends and approaches and features:

  • the conflict between self-expression and expression of the sacred

  • the conflict between sculptural signification and functionalism

  • beautifully illustrated with around 350 photographs.

Contemporary Church Architecture is prefaced by two in-depth essays which explore fully the modernist roots of the contemporary church and then explicitly the northern tradition, providing unique and current insights into the latest developments in church architecture.
