alvar aalto - riola parish church model

Ugly, barren, brutal.

Ew.

The worst thing is that on Architecture course one still gets taught about how ‘good’ these buildings are. The problem is that although they may be ‘interesting’ in a secular use, they are totally unsuited to the liturgy.I mean who would say a hotel should be designed the same as a factory? So why do we think it doesn’t matter with churches?
