"In a society that celebrates the inessential, architecture can put up a resistance, counteract the waste of forms and meanings, and speak its own language. I believe that the language of architecture is not a question of a specific style. Every building is built for a specific use in a specific place and for a specific society"

Peter Zumthor

Location: Rome, Italy

Architect: Richard Meier


"Dives in Misericordia" is the church planned by the architect RICHARD MEIER and built in Rome. The project synthesizes in simple way but dared the three functions of "place of reception, place of convocation and place of Church."

"Dives in Misericordia" comes from Latin and it means "Rich in Mercy"

The use of the white concrete, the surfaces glass door, the coverages of crystal and the diffused brightness of the insides turn Dives into Mercy in a source of "light and truth."
