    Description :

    The Wartburg Church is a prototype for Frankfurt church construction of the 1960s. Built on a hexagonal floor plan, the church has a hip roof and a freestanding bell-tower.

    Modesty-in-form is reflected in the choice of materials: natural stone, exposed concrete and glass.

    Architect Neumann compares his church with the neighboring Catholic St. Michael’s “with its hard-to-understand organic form. The new church is the antithesis with severe, clear and distinct thinking.”
