A new spire | Birds monastry


Man and Nature*



The sacramentskerk in Tilburg is abandoned and the ship of the church will be be demolished soon. However the front facade including the tower will continue to excist.


The original spire on top of the tower has been wrecked by war damage. The original spire was pointedly shaped directly into the sky.


The main purpose of the church was to bring people together. because people do not get together here anymore and the new form of the building no longer lends itself to this, a new inhabitant is invited.


The proposed copper cube offers accommodation for new city inhabitants.


Due to the growing cities, there is less and less space for wildlife. A number of animals have learned to adapt and live in cities. Now we only need to help them a bit.



*George Perkins Mars, 1864
