Text description provided by the architects. The Santi Cosma e Damiano Parochial Centre, is the result of a winning competition entry. The parochial centre has a C-shaped plan, where are located the church and the bell tower in the east, some classrooms where children study religion in the afternoon in the north-west and the large meeting and presentation hall in the south. The short side of this latter, which overlooks a plaza, can be opened to create a stage for outdoor events. The interior of the church is illuminated from above by a canon de lumière that brings light onto the altar. Here light is used to give voice to the sacred. The large inclined roof defines the rhythm of the building.
