Someone – I don’t remember who – said that architecture is light.
St. Moritz Church in Augsburg, Germany, has been through many lifetimes. Built a millenium ago (1019), it has been ravaged by fire and wartime bombing, not to mention ill-conceived alterations. But it has endured – no, it has prevailed – and so could not be more deserving of the latest attention lavished on it.
The Catholic cathedral has been reimagined by British architect, John Pawson, into a sublime, minimalist, light-infused space. The divine made real.
When it comes to travel, as that is what I am mostly about, my joy is journeying to see life changing objects, buildings, images. They give me such a lightness of being, such hope, to know that man can indeed produce beauty for its own sake.
