#245 QUEL EST CE LIEU ? WHERE ARE YOU ?

Empty contemporary space with colored ceiling, rainbow light coming from the ceiling.

When experience meets traditional symbolism of places of worship. 

Breaking with the conventions about sacred places, this contemporary building is the Church of Beatified Restituta, in Czech Republic. In a world where we are constantly stimulated by messages and visual elements, the huge empty space aims at freeing oneself and focusing on the inner self.

The church’s central room is a circle, symbol of eternity, serenity, fullness but also heaven. Throughout the day, the modernised stained glass lets the light in as a divine rainbow and thus creates an atmosphere that is both invigorating and soothing at the same time.


Quand le symbolisme traditionnel des lieux de culte rencontre l’expérience.

Rompant avec les conventions sur les lieux sacrés, ce bâtiment contemporain est l’Eglise de la Restituta béatifiée, en République tchèque. Dans un monde où les images et les stimulations nous assaillent à tous moments, l’immense espace vide permet de se libérer et de se concentrer sur son moi intérieur.

La pièce centrale de l’église est un cercle, symbole d’éternité, de sérénité, de plénitude mais aussi de paradis. Au fil de la journée, les vitraux modernisés laissent entrer la lumière telle un arc-en-ciel divin et créent ainsi une atmosphère à la fois vivifiante et apaisante.
