RELIGIOUS
FUZHOU JINSHAN CHURCH
With many Christians in China being converted to the religion as adults, the ceremony of baptism plays a dominant role for local communities. The design for Fuzhou’s new mother church begins therefore with a monumental baptismal font positioned in the very center of the church, below a monumental cross suspended from a sky well. The seating areas on 3 floors are organized concentrically around the cross, emphasizing the Christians’ equality before God. The churches’ facade is wrapped around its core resembling ancient parchment scrolls, and further shaped in order to evoke a traditional church silhouette.
