Closer to God

An article on the website of Wired magazine, of all unlikely sources, reminded me of the most recent coffeetable-worthy church building catalog published at the beginning of last month. The book in question is entitled Closer to God edited by Robert Klanten and Lukas Feireiss. I do not yet have a copy, so I cannot provide a review; but let us hope that the book itself contains more insight into the motivation of religious architecture than the merit-based votive self-preservation suggested by the article on Wired.

The Wired article also features some nice photographs of San Paolo, Foligno designed by Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas.
