|Discussion||Pilgrimage Church Commentary
"The church in Neviges is situated on a slope, which, in conjunction with a flanking development, we turned into a great processional way for pilgrims.
"This route leads to and open forecourt in front of the church and continues into the space within, the altar area representing the culmination of this path."
Gottfried Bohm. from Svetlozar Raèv, Peter Green, translator. Gottfried Bohm: Lectures Buildings Projects. p96.
The Creator's Words
"His own guiding principlewhich can be summarized in the term 'creating connections' forms an unfailing part of his work, from the very beginning to today. What is implied here is the complex interplay of material and immaterial components of a building within its own natural and cultural context. 'I believe,' he once said, 'that the future for architects does not lie so much in continuing to consume ever more areas of open countryside with building, but in mending and restoring order to existing towns and villages by creating links between functions, structures, materials and so on.' "
"Anyone who does not have the strength to sin will not necessarily be a saint or a good architect,more likely a bore."
Gottfried Bohm. from Svetlozar Raèv, Peter Green, translator. Gottfried Bohm: Lectures Buildings Projects. p9, 11.
