Kirche und Gemeindezentrum Zum heiligen Bruder Klaus von der Flüe

A playful combination of curves and straight lines characterize the Bruder Klaus Church. It was designed by the architect Karl Hans Neumann, who built over a dozen churches between the 1950s and 1980s. The horseshoe-shaped bell tower with its sloped top and the western wall react to the curved lot. The pebble shaped roof is reminiscent of Corbusier’s chapel in Ronchamp and features small apertures for a soft lighting. A row of narrow windows provide additional sparse light. Smaller, polygonally shaped rooms are grouped towards the north-east. Otto Herbert Hajek contributed the relief above the entrance and other artistic decoration for the building.
