Dove of Peace Church

Location: Inner Mongolia, China

Architect: Sunlay Design

Year Completed: 2009

The overhead view of the Dove of Peace Church resembles the profile of a bird in flight, further emphasizing the church's name. The church sits on top of a hill and is made of concrete, also incorporating a pool of water at one end of the terrace. Streams of light pour in through carefully placed windows, creating a harmony between the interior and the natural surroundings.The project was never fully executed.
