Curvy Contemporary Cathedrals
The San Josemaria Escriva Church Brings New Shape to Church Design

By: Jamie Danielle Munro (Superstar) May 10, 11

The San Josemaría Escrivá Church located in Mexico City infuses church design with a triangular shape. If you are a church-goer who worships contemporary design as much as the man upstairs, then this holy place is for you.

Designed by Javier Sordo Madaleno Bringas, the San Josemaría Escrivá Church has a modern look that allows it to blend in with its urban surroundings. The setting, previously used as a dump for the city garbage, is now revamped with the stylish church as the main focal point. Inside the building, the space is lit with natural sunlight that streams through the skylight set in a cross shape. The architecture, then, appeals to the religious intent of the space while giving the church a modern feel.
