This church in Chicago was host to the first English speaking seminary of The Christian Community. Previously, all training for the priesthood was in Stuttgart and Hamburg. I lazure painted with red violet and indigo blue.
When natural light falls upon a lazure painted wall, there is a subtle fluctuation of colour. Here it is yellow ochre and English red.
“Frost of an alien place – warmth of self-discovery.”
The original concept and colour scheme for the medical centre was – reddish on the right hand side coming in from the front door and bluish on the left side. This was to reflect the active side of the doctors and the caring side of the nurses, with meeting in peach blossom in the middle and upper landing to reflect the mixing of red and blue in the blood, leading towards the truly human of the future.
