Christ Church Spitalfields

Nicholas Hawksmoor

London, UK


A building of such unorthodox yet perfect proportions both outside and in, this church seems to stand outside architectural history in a zone of its own.


The crisp clarity of Hawksmoor's design creates at once a monumentality and a lightness in the form of the church. The building simultaneously squats and floats on its site. Commanding a view the length of the opposing street it can be approached, gleaming and unobstructed, at any time of the day. Once inside the planes of light which radiate from the exterior seem to have been emanating from the unexpectedly brilliant interior spaces. There is an almost overwhelming sense of proportion and order, balance and harmony
