|:||The church of Seliger Pater Rupert Mayer in the town of Poing, near Munich in Germany, is topped with a ceramic crown clad with 15,000 white, three-dimensional tiles. Munich studio Meck Architekten designed the rectangular church, which can accommodate 220 worshipers, to be a landmark in the growing town."The contrast between the ethereal white crown and the stone foundation represents a vision of heaven and earth, of transcendence and immanence, and it is in this field of tension that the church space is anchored."|
