Huaxiang Church Church and Community Centre

Dirk Uwe Moench

Architecture, Building and Structure Design Huaxiang Church Church and Community Centre by Dirk Uwe Moench Located in the centre of the Southern Chinese city of Fuzhou, this Christian Community Centre reflects the vision of a new generation of Christians in a changing China. Entrenched by a historic church and newly built malls and high-rises it adopts the role of urban mediator, harmonizing modern city and ancient architecture whilst complementing the old church’s skyline. More than an echo of ancient tradition, its pitched roofs serve as elevated amphitheatres for open-air services and as escapes from the bustle below.
