Jose Maria de Escrivá Church

Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos as Architects

The San Jose María Escrivá Church is formed by the outline of two ellipses, representing a fish (ichthus) one of the most traditional Christian symbols, set within seven golden rectangles, like two warped surfaces that rise up and converge to form a diagonal cross that allows natural light to enter the interior of the building and draws attention to the inner space. The façade material is made of zinc panels that provides dynamism and movement to the facade.
