    Description :

    The pilgrimage church in Neviges is considered one of the most important spatial creations of twentieth century architecture. The building is seen as an incarnation of the architectural fantasies of the Expressionists from the 1920s and as Gottfried Böhm’s most important creation.

    In an article in “Architecture and Urbanism” Donald E. Olsen praised Böhm’s works in the highest terms, saying of the Church of the Pilgrimage at Neviges, “Böhm’s ability to dematerialize this massive structure of modern concrete technology through the application of sheer volume, shape and light-modulation, advances many of the goals of modern architecture and transcends and even transgresses some of its alleged precepts.”

    “Neviges, together with a significant portion of Böhm’s other work, preceded by far the current attempts to create architecture in a new paradigm described as ‘post-modern’…earlier examples of his work…predated by two decades or more the superficial parodying-of-history theme which is presently the avant-garde rage in America.” (Donald E. Olsen)
