    What do you guys, the professionals, make of this rather [unique would be the word, but it doesn't sound just] combination of brick and concrete?

    Is Böhm humanizing the concrete with brick and soft touches of light? Elsewhere,

    he was even cutting the corners of the concrete walls/ceiling as if to diminish the bluntness of the concrete.

    However humanized, somehow, one is still suspended in a metaphysical space. To also hear what I mean, check this out:

    yes, yes, yes - suspended in a metaphysical space, the fate of the romantic german artist! I think I have something for you in the next image and text (after supper!)

    böhm, not half as mad as I thought after all....I'd only seen a few photos of this church before but now I'm struck by it considering a recent competition by mansilla and tunon, the gallery set against mountains.
    thanks for posting as ever, your trips cheer me up after a tough day....

    thanks mark

    you know, when I was there I couldn't help thinking that someone out there is studying böhm's works from the 60's these days. there are also some small scale japanese projects that look strangely related.
