Could you ever imagine that a shopping centre could also be a church?
In Singapore this imagination exists !
This amazing modern building is designed by the architect Andrew Bromberg. If you ever pass by this amazing ultramodern skyscraper you would probably think that it is a big bank, a luxury hotel or a big office but it will never cross your mind that it is actually a church.
It not only contains shops and restaurants but also an auditorium with capacity of 5,000 people to celebrate the liturgy.
Nevertheless, it is important to mention about the design that the use of isolating glass & grooves in the stucture allows better air circulation and energy efficiency. The exterior facade looks more like a sedimented rock with a continuous succession of solid and void layers in which the balcony looks like cracks.
This building keeps humans’ curiosity alive. I bet that if you ever travel to SIngapore and pass by this amazing structure you would have a hard time not entering there!
The big building by Andrew Bromberg in Singapore: church, shopping centre, a place of worship and entertainment.
