Church in La Laguna

Church in La Laguna

This concrete church in Spain was designed by Fenando Menis of Menis Arquitectos.  Really cool building.  It looks like Daniel Liebeskind and Tadao Ando had a baby.  I’m not real wild about the caged rocks in the sanctuary, but I absolutely love the form, and the raw concrete.  However, if it weren’t for the play with light from the sun, the place would likely be very foreboding, which isn’t really a good thing when it comes to churches.  That being said, I would definitely say that the mass and scale of the space invoke awe, which you absolutely want in a church.  You can learn more about the church from the designer’s website.
