Catharsis


It is not often that architecture causes catharsis. But for me this building is like a jewelry in Tampere surroundings. It is not just the building itself but also the location. First you walk through area of beautiful small wooden houses, and then suddenly you come to open area where stands this magnificent and still so simple church. But it is not just a church. There is also youth clubroom and chaplaincy within same building, which makes it look like a monastery. Although this church is quite typical 1920s classicism, it also has features of functionalism. Today I went just to photograph the building. Earlier I have just taken some shots of it's bell tower from far away. My next mission is to go and see how it looks inside.

    why they make them complicated? now a days, ppl not interested in the church, i guess the world is changing direction…here in Holland so many churches closing down because of finacial reason…

    I suppose the interest in religions have lessen in general among western people. That still does not mean loss of interest on spiritual knowledge. And that may reflect even on architecture. We seek for some sort of enlightenment instead of grace, thus making us to develop more simple forms and less decoration.

  7. Well, that is irrelevant when one "believes that it is impossible to know whether there is a God". Then it is not any more important than to speculate when Buddha or Napoleon has born. We have more or less evidence those individuals have actually existed, but knowing that does not help as to find out if such thing as God exists or not.
