Minimal Architecture

In deeply Catholic Poland, the building of new churches is a serious matter. This modern and very modest place of worship is not constructed through the auspices of any local diocese, but rather by a private individual, an anonymous Polish writer. The bucolic surroundings are preserved with this very minimal and neutral structure and does not take away from the natural world around it. And you get a sense that serenity and isolation in thought to pray and contemplate is encouraged. The site lies on the outskirts of Tarnów, a small hamlet on the edge of the Vistula, Poland’s mighty main river.
