The scheme, named “Dove of Peace”, gives its metaphor and poetry to the church by re-interpreting a contemporary and abstract silhouette of a bird carrying an Olive branch within its beak. The Church has a concrete structure and uses white crepi finish for its facades. Its dynamic shape follows the adjacent curved road that crosses the site. The dialogue between the outside and the inside space is emphasized by the play of shadow and light that creates complexity and depth in the space. Its elements are thought to reflect harmony and tranquillity in this place for prayer and celebration.
