12/07/2021 — Kadon Parish Church



The new Church of the Parish of #Kadon is a symbol for a vibrant community. Situated on top of a hill in the southern province of Lam Dong in #Vietnam it creates a sacred place with a simple architectural gesture. A plainly shaped #roof inspired by the local vernacular and materials such as #wood and iron enhance the building's relationship with nature and the opening of the sacred space outwards.

My friends at @vn.art.arc wrote their thesis on this project and then, with the support of a number of dedicated professors at @tu_berlin, they were able to build it. In 2016 the #church was awarded second prize at the international Prize for Sacred Architecture. I documented the church along its consecration in 2014.
