Religious sects around the world seem to be more and more concerned with their modern image, wanting to draw in the younger generations, and the Zhongguancun Christian Church is just one of the latest contemporary designs to see the light of day.

Designed by Hamburg-based architectural practice GMP Architekten, the Zhongguancun Christian Church is located in Beijing, China. Featuring white stripes (or fins) that form a unique homogeneous skin, the design allows light to stream through into the church's hall.
