UH - Saint John's Abbey Church

iddqd Studio, 2015

The «UNFORGOTTEN HERITAGE» is a project that spotlights some of the extraordinary architectural masterpieces of the past, still glaring through the shadow of their oblivion.

The first of the series is a short inspirational movie about Marcel Breuer’s Saint John’s Abbey Church, a milestone in the evolution of the Catholic architecture of the XX century.

Through an intricate process of careful collection and visualization of all the details on this wonderful building that we could get we managed to give everyone the opportunity to virtually experience its architectural beauty and uniqueness.

The stained-glass window facade of the church is one of the largest in the world. It faces north so that the only way for the light to pass through is by being reflected by the Bell Banner, a keynote for the building.

We tried our best to not just depict the building exactly as it is, but also to reveal the idea and the very heart of the Saint John’s Abbey Church architecture.

Hope you enjoy it and share our love and passion for this perfect illustration of timeless architecture.
