Church architecture is theology in stone. Each part of the temple, decoration details, elements, small architectural shapes have their symbolic meaning. The temple is a symbol of the Church, space and man. Therefore, when designing churches, it is important to know the basics of Christian ecclesiology, anthropology and eschatology, so that the entire process of design and further implementation of the project is in harmony with the tradition of the Church and the canonical foundations of church art. However, even in this format there is a considerable amount of creativity in church art and architecture. To coordinate and properly express the beauty, practicality and functionality, canonical and theological foundations, harmonious artistry and architectural and construction practice is a challenge for a contemporary church architect.
In addition, the proper design of all areas for the activity of parishes and monasteries is important in the architecture of churches and compounds. The client takes an active part in this process. All functional elements of the project, from liturgical aspects to social and technical services, are discussed with him.
During the design process, there is always a whole team under the supervision of the leading architect of the project which includes architects, designers, heating, ventilation, water supply, landscaping professionals, visualizers, artists, sculptors, and others. The combination of the work of all experts in the manifestation of a coherent architectural concept is the key to a harmonious spatial and visual system with its idea, theological foundations, construction and functional characteristics.
