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."

The dome measures 212 meters in east-west direction, 144 meters in north-south direction, and is 46 meters high. The main entrance is at the north side. Guests arrive in the building after walking through a hallway that goes underneath the lake. The titanium shell is broken by a glass curtain in north-south direction that gradually widens from top to bottom.
