Analysis

Manikata Church
Malta, Richard England

I was interested in various aspects of the church. The splitting of the ellipse into two halves, followed by the shifting on the ‘y’ axis creates interesting moments of entry and exit that slips in between the two curved walls. I was also very intrigued that many of the details, such as the mullions and the pews, followed the concept and really formed a complete design throughout. The modern elements of the bare cross, open confessionals and low-rise altar are also very significant elements.
