  • This is the church where you can see a building with a black box in front of the U1 metro station. The inner circle is a large space with no unobstructed wood. There is a glass window that resembles a slug in the ceiling, and a large circle is carved on the wall, and there is a thin cut which likened it to the cross in that. There was also a canvas with a black drawing on the wall, depicting scenes from the biblical story.

  • The square cadre of black chrome steel made the small church look like the mysterious black monolith from Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey amid all the towering skyscrapers. A sign, a signal. Small but unmistakable. (Witty: The church was consecrated in 2000!) And then the interior! A miracle! The Viennese architect Heinz Tesar has created a miracle! Walls, floors, benches, furniture, all made of very light birch wood, so a living room has been created that takes you warm, where you feel safe and at home. Lighting by tiny small and slightly larger circular windows that shine and glow like a starry sky, plus on the ceiling a curved slit in memory of the side wound of Christ, which directs sunlight to the altar. Light dramaturgy: At any time of the day, every tiny ray of sunshine illuminates the interior, at night the church shines brightly from the inside out like a starry sky. Altar, baptismal font, ambo and tabernacle stalks made of granite give hold, firmness, stability.
