Martin Luther Church in Hainburg, Austria, by Coop Himmelb(l)au
August 24, 2011

Coop Himmelb(l)au Martin Luther Church HainburgIn less than a year a protestant church was built in the centre of the Lower Austrian town Hainburg. The shape of the building is derived from that of a huge "table", with its entire roof construction resting on the legs of the "table" - four steel columns. Another key element is the ceiling of the prayer room: its design language has been developed from the shape of the curved roof of a neighboring Romanesque ossuary - the geometry of this century-old building is translated into a form, in line with the times, via today's digital instruments.
Like other projects of COOP HIMMELB(L)AU the roof elements of the church building were assembled in a shipyard. The implementation of the intricate geometries required specific technologies of metal-processing and manufacturing only available in shipbuilding industry. The reference to shipbuilding is at the same time also reminiscent of Le Corbusier who served as an important role model, not least because of his La Tourette monastery.
