The project a Catholic Church - sits within a linear park on the north east edge of the river Clyde was developed to house the large catholic community in the East end of Glasgow. Designed for 300 people it has a bell tower and office accommodation.
Built in masonry construction, a brick becomes a part, which is repeated to form the whole. It creates massiveness; from which spaces are sculpted leaving behind a negative that inhabits the lifecycle of the catholic faith.
The monolithic structure creates dark spaces that are lit by shards of light entering through the clerestory. It is the ambition that the architectural alchemy of construction and the scarcity of light form a phenomenological condition that is experienced within the sacred space.
The booklet begins with an overview of the whole and concludes focusing on the parts in the form of an investigation of brick detailing.
