Data Architectes has submitted their project, a proposal for the Cultural and Spiritual Russian Orthodox Center in Paris. Additional images and a short description from the architect after the break.
Two large signs announcing the spiritual and cultural center of Russian Orthodox Paris:
A bar extends compatible with the spirit of the Avenue Rapp then closes the overall composition of the island along the Quai Branly.
A hexagonal cone in the center of the garden inspired by the sublime wooden churches of the Russian far north. It contains the place of celebration of the believers.
These two nested objects are merged by the extensive use of stone in Paris.
