The Pastoor van Ars Church that was built in 1969 by Aldo van Eyck in The Hague is one of the few significant church buildings to emerge from the second half of the twentieth century. This book sheds light on the unique architectural and spatial qualities of the building. Although not a Catholic believer himself, Van Eyck endeavored to realize an authentic and contemporary Catholic church building. To this end, he went back to the original typology of the early Christian basilica, whose components he incorporated into the new conception of space put forward by the twentieth-century avant-garde, in particular the dynamic order of Mondrian and the archetypes of Brancusi. The author, who previously wrote an extensive monograph on the ideas and work of the Dutch architect, pays particular attention to the intensive design process, which he has reconstructed using more than a hundred design sketches from the Van Eyck archive.
