A new community church
The resurrected church
A contest won. Two years of construction. A parish complex with deep roots that is reborn from its own ashes. To become a place of open community and engine of social and urban regeneration. In the name of sustainability.
“The new parish complex of the Resurrection of our Lord – say the TAMassociati – is a strong sign of renewal for the whole neighborhood and a model of participation between clients, designers, social and institutional actors, open to the city. A church of, with and for the community.
