777. Auferstchungskirche Essen-Altstadt



Dear Lisa,

The protestant Church of the Resurrection was built in
Essen in the early years of the Great Depression. The
architect Otto Bartning designed a simple central structure
on a circular ground plan, and used steel, concrete, and
brick as construction materials. The unusual shape of this
influential church not only responds to budget restrictions
but to the architect's willingness of making the building
reflects its main function: a community grouped around
the preacher.

Warm regards,
R
