The Intrusive Church
Cross-axial geometries saturate the plans and details of both classical and modern architecture. Thus, spaces and signs of “the cross” tend to appear in many profane or everyday spaces. Zurich’s Hauptbanhof is one such space. Is the HB dreaming of a Cathedral? Does the addition of a housing tower and hundreds of thousands of new “crosses” (in plan, section, elevation) amplify or undermine its ecclesial undertones?
