The Image of an Orthodox Church in a Modern Architectural Solution – Design You Trust

The Image of an Orthodox Church in a Modern Architectural Solution

Some time ago, The Union of Architects of Russia and Union of Philanthropy Organizations of Russia have announced a competition called “The Image of an Orthodox Church in a Modern Architectural Solution”. The competition will conclude with the selection of the 10 best architectural projects, which wil be put on display at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow, RIA Novosti reports.

“First of all the projects should be focused not on stylizing cathedral architecture of past eras but rather on expressing in the image of the cathedral traditional features alongside modern aesthetics,” the organizers note.

The jury and expert council include representatives of the architecture community and the Russian Orthodox Church as well as historians of church architecture.

Take a look at some fantastic examples below!
