Iglesia de San Francisco de Asis
C/Ausias March.Cullera, Valencia (Spain)
Parroquia San Francisco de Asis.
San Francisco of Asis Church
Built by Juan Maria Moreno.The church has a surface of 1.500 m2 and its maximum capacity is of 525 persons. The north wall at the level of the ground floor is practicable and in the summer season it allows to increase the number of persons participating in the liturgy on the plaza. It is surrounded by blocks of 11 storeys and that’s why we adopted a strategy to interpret church-home-dwelling as a whole, around a patio or narthex using hollows and gestures of great scale. We have to refer to the symbolic elements. The orientation of the church is canonical and the octagonal dome refers to the eighth day. The stone division which acts as a brise soleil in the dome are related to the hymn to the Holy Ghost .The Word is introduced in the middle of the assembly – in relation to the fact that the Word made his dwelling among us- and perpendicularly towards the main direction given that who chairs, is also questioned by the Word.
