    Description :

    “The whole plan of the building seems to be organized around light and its symbolic and psychological values as well as perception by the congregation. The light sources are never seen directly but are distributed in such a way as to obtain a kind of luminous penumbra in the nave by diffusing light through a dense series of perforations in the high side walls in stark contrast with shafts of unadulterated light entering through the lantern covering and concentrated in the space around the altar.”
