Sculptural Religious Sanctuaries
The Martin Luther Church Focuses on Light and Transparency

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Aug 18, 11

The Martin Luther Church is an impressive sculptural structure that is worthy of being associated with this iconic activist figure. Although the shape of this religious sanctuary seems more complicated than a simple piece of furniture, it was actually modeled after a table. The roof acts as the surface, which rests on four steel columns.

Designed by Coop Himmelb(l)au and located in Hainburg, Austria, the Martin Luther Church focuses in particular on the play with light and transparency. This modern building offers an open space in which natural light streams through, giving it a naturally divine presence.

The open space of the Martin Luther Church also encourages a sense of community that is further represented by a children’s corner and public hall.
