Future Church: Global Church

  • Jun 20, 2015

The Challenge

The church is growing rapidly in countries where there are limited resources. This team was tasked with developing a concept where large churches in countries with resources could provide structures that would be easily implementable in underdeveloped global areas in a variety of climates and terrains.

The Big Idea

The Global Church relies on infrastructure that can be drop-shipped and completed with indigenous materials. The design is affordable, secure, sustainable and repeatable in different climates. Details and features of the global church include:

  • Water storage and electricity generation
  • Light materials are affordable to drop ship but strong and durable once welded
  • Resilient in rainy and dry climates.
  • Masonry wall with indigenous materials serves as security and can be painted/finished by local artists.
