Resurrection of Christ Church (Kirche Christi Auferstehung)

This hall church has an irregular polygonal plan with pyramiding building structures made of brick and concrete. Several building sections grow gradually in the air and end off in sloping roof surfaces. Inside, there is a cave-like atmosphere. The interlocking building masses create separate spaces for each liturgical task, for example a side chapel to the left of the main altar, and an intimate oratory for private prayers on the right hand side. The dominating effect, however, comes from the ceiling construction: heavy concrete columns carry the vault with its concrete masses piling up to the maximum height above the altar.
