Saint Walburga’s Church

Antwerpen Sint-Walburgis
Antwerpen, Sint-Walburgiskerk

Modernistic aisleless church (1938) in the ‘New Objectivity’ style. It is an example of a ‘comprehensive work of art’, designed after the ideas of the ‘Pelgrimbeweging’ (Pilgrim’s movement).  This goes for the building (architects Flor Van Reeth and Jan Smits) as well as for the colourful stained glass windows (Eugeen Yoors). The austere stone sculpture (Simon Goossens) and the silver works of art (Rie Haan) strongly support the liturgical function.
