Thierry Boissel

St. Joseph in Montigny-Lès-Cormeilles

For the new construction of St. Joseph's Church north of Paris, the artist Thierry Boissel developed the excellent concept for the stained-glass painting, the main piece of which, the self-supporting glass facade measuring 6 x 18.5 meters, is also a special technical achievement, as it does not require a metal construction. The glass painting is part of the architecture and its light connects space, liturgy and time. Boissel chose a profiled construction glass as the carrier material, which, due to its physical depth, allows a special interaction of the vertical colored stripes that lie on the interior and exterior surfaces. The light creates a spiritual atmosphere that changes depending on the time of day and location. Green, orange, yellow, blue, red and grey allude to the creation of the world. Each color symbolizes a day, with the seventh day being the sum total. This is also to symbolize the commune of Montigny-lès-Cormeilles. The project won the first prize of the international CODA-Worx Award 2020.
