Chiesa di Dio Padre Misericordioso

The south side of the church features three large curved walls of pre-cast concrete. Meier claims to have designed the church to minimize thermal peak loads inside, and more efficient use of energy. The concrete contains titanium dioxide and is photocatalytic, which means that it reacts with sunlight to bleach itself and so hopefully not turn grey with time.
