Christ Resurrection Church and parish center is located in a narrow plot of Milan’s industrial periphery. A warehouse-like building built in the sixties by worker priests suggested the simplicity of its design, which emerges from the surrounding. The street façade bends inward to familiarize for the main diagonal view, and the high hall takes the shape of a large rectangular box enriched by two large “sails” embracing the assembly.
The fronts are paneled in vertical strips of different materials like concrete, white stone, zinc, glass that responds to the different edge conditions. Inside the church hall two concrete walls curve up to the ceiling, creating the illusion of a pitched roof. Architect has made a very creative use of line and form.
