Danish architects CEBRA has created a proposal for a replacement of old church which was burned down to ground in 2009 in Våler, Norway creates a symbolic landmark in the shape of a tilting cross using light and wood as key design elements for the interior. When the cross shape is tilted and the church's roof forms a sloping plane the motif becomes visible at eye level as well as from the air, creating the same image from both points of view. The project incorporates a series of techniques such as prisms, camera obscura and peg mirror in the design process in order to capture and utilize the 'light' for supporting the liturgical and ceremonial proceedings internally as well as externally.
