Christ is Risen, a Screenwall for Holy Spirit Catholic Church
Christ is Risen is a perforated metal artwork made for the Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The artwork was produced by Zahner working under BCDM Architects who provided the church's desired imagery. This image was processed using patented ZIRA (now ImageWall) technology developed for designing custom perforation.
The chapel was completed in 2011. The decision to use perforated metal to depict the church's iconography was selected as a contemporary alternative to stained glass. The perforated copper surface provides an iconic image which resonates during both the day as well as the evening.
Church of the Resurrection
The Church of the Resurrection is a new construction for the Leawood congregation designed by HGA with Gould Evans. Zahner provided the exterior secondary structure (ZEPPS), and the stainless steel cladding in Angel Hair finish on 316 alloy. Seven stainless-steel clad sails, inspired by the seven days of creation, alternate with diffuse slot windows to create a light-filled volume that draws attention upward for reflection, prayer and adoration.Landscaped parking extends to an arrival plaza, welcoming the community to the sanctuary from all directions. Inside, a thrust chancel platform and a single balcony bring congregants close to the worship leaders, with a variety of seating types allowing flexibility in service size.
