Giacomo Bergonzoni’s Thesis. University of Bologna, Building Engineering/Architecture, Academic Year 2011/12. Advisor: prof. Alessio Erioli. Co-advisors: Prof. Luigi Bartolomei, Ing. Giovanni Berti, prof. Stephen Fai. Design of a catholic church at Ottawa. In the lot where the church of Saint Charles (135 Barrette Street, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) on Beechwood Avenue, in Vanier neighborhood historically frenchspeaking, I have designed the new church with the adjoining parish buildings. Through a careful analysis of the site I have identified special historical, landscape and socio-cultural features of the existing church and in the new project I enhanced the strengths of the previous building and I have integrated it with a contemporary architecture. The sacred architecture has been developed with reference to the archetype of the tent that is, from the beginning of Christian salvation history, the temple in which God reveals himself and in which it is present among men: “And the Word became flesh and pitched his tent among us “(John 1,14).
