What Would Jesus Build?

Some Chinese Christians have faith that Jesus might give his blessing to this accordion harkening church designed by Architect GMP. Serving as China’s largest Christian church, with repeating vertical lines reaching to the heavens, the architects have created an open and bright space that reflects their client’s openness and belief in their state of enlightenment. The interior does a decent job of reflecting the less-is-more lessons Jesus preached to his followers and is in sharp contrast to the opulent and ornate gothic cathedrals commonly seen in Catholic churches. I still look forward to a church design that truly reflects what Jesus taught and incorporates a hillside setting that celebrates nature’s beauty and grounds us all to this beautiful Earth, while rising our spirits to the heavens. Back to the drawing board I guess…
