Cathedral Fold is a 2322 square meters place of worship designed by New York-based architecture office Axis Mundi in Strasbourg, France. Composed of a series of pleated concrete arches, the proposal features both subtle and dramatic design characteristics that together create a new and contemporary place of worship. It will be made of 7 folded arches covering a latin cross that creates the church floor.
Glazed in between the folds of the concrete roof form, the cathedral opens up to the north and the south, supplying a generous volume of light for the interior space. The floor plan is plugged into the site, submerging the â€˜cruciformâ€™ layout below grade. A low-angle ramp leads the visitors into the cathedral where the foundational footings of the concrete folds accent the space in a rhythmic manner. An amazing creation covering a modern look into christianism with a background of gothic art history.
