We have visited Cologne in Germany some time ago, where we have found several examples of brilliant modernist sacral architecture. One of them is this church of St. Engelbert.

Built between 1928−1932, the St. Engelbert church is a masterwork of Dominikus Böhm (1880 – 1955), who was specialist for sacral architecture. Father of more famous Gottfried Böhm, who also designed many churches around Germany, built churches in Cologne, the Ruhr area, Swabia, and Hesse. Many of his buildings are examples of Brick Expressionism. The finest example is St. Engelbert in Cologne, which is formed by the puristic arched volumes made out of brick. Inside you can find calm white space, where architect re-interpreted the grandiosity of the classical architecture through generous minimalism.
