The Church of the Sacred Heart by Joze Plecnik -- aMoreSt Pauls Cathedral is an iconic British building combining Renaissance and Baroque elements. Vaughan Hart examines Wrens extraordinary exterior, brilliantly constructed dome and radiant interior. The Church of the Sacred Heart by Joze Plecnik -- a key representative of the Modern Movement -- dominates a quiet square in Prague- Ivan Margolius discusses the classical and traditional Slovenian elements which create a building of great architectural force. The Church on the Water and Church of the Light complement each other perfectly: one rural and open, the other urban and closed. Philip Drew explains how Ando created in them a synthesis of opposites. Considering these churches together allows an insight into the varying approaches taken by architects towards creating sacred Christian space.
