located in florida, the tampa covenant church is a modernist white stucco structure that makes use of the fibonacci sequence in its design. the project was recently awarded the aia florida award of design excellence and measures 25,000 square feet in area. the church features a worship sanctuary, administrative offices and classrooms spread across a new building and two existing ones, which were renovated as part of this project. the architect connected these through an outdoor courtyard that serves as an outdoor meeting place. the exterior design and interior layout take inspiration from the fibonacci sequence, used for establishing scale and proportion among all the elements.

  • If it weren’t for the cross above, the passerby wouldn’t identify the building as a church. Even the interior is more of an auditorium or a theater. As for the design itself, I think that the white stucco, the rectangular subtractions in the façade and the sharp angles are interesting.
