this is a collage i made for another class. tomorrow a partner and i are giving a presentation on collage churches, and up until yesterday, we had no idea what that expression means (and still don’t really understand it!)

at first we thought that a “collage church” was its own typology–something scientific that we could just talk about, but it is not. the idea of  the “collage church” is similar to archigrams representations of the city–a bricolage of displaced elements. for this collage, i stitched together some existing church typologies that have developed over the ever-evolving practices of christianity. calling out the dialectics: urban + pastoral, community + individual, simulacra + honesty, this collage addresses how the physical representation of the church lies somewhere between utopia and traditional ideals.
