Cathedral calls to mind the factories which were before in this area, symbolizing a big gear with its pawls. The bell tower also is a readapted old chimney.

As u can see in these pictures, the churchyard overlooks the “under construction” district park, which will includes old industrial archaeology finds (the red columns were part of the old iron-steel Fiat pole)

The "new" Metropolitan Cathedral (Managua, Nicaragua). You can thank Ricardo Legorreta for this one.

The one in Tokyo, rebuilt in 1964 after being burned down during the WW II.
designed by Kenzo Tange, who later built Tokyo City Hall, Yokohama Landmark Tower, etc. He himself was a Christian.

Depends on how you define new.

From the old Frauenkirche was not much more left than a few black stones. Effectively you have here a newly built church that has been finished just a few years ago. You might contest though, that it was not built but rebuilt.

This is what the new St Peters Lutheran Church looked like after Citigroup Ctr was built over the old one.

The latest cathedral in France (cathédrale de la Résurrection) was built in 1995 in Evry (near Paris) by Mario Botta

that church in Warsaw looks amazing.

Heres the basilica of Our lady of the Peace in Yammoussoukro - 520 ft high and the tallest dome in the world. This place is HUGE




This whole part of the city is still sparsely developed and under development

ineterior, with glass apex to the dome:

The Warsaw one is simply amazing. I am also very interested in the Managua one. It looks like a mosque out of an ancient Middle East Town. Stunning!!!!!!!
