Notre Dame Rosary church les Lilas, France by enia architectes
The Les Lilas church was built back in 1887 as a temporary structure (using superficial foundations, plaster, timber), and was recently threatening to fall into ruin. The Commune of Les Lilas (a commune in the eastern, suburbs of Paris, France) and the diocese of Saint Denis (the French 'department' where Les Lilas is located) therefore launched an architectural competition in 2005 for the construction of a new church and an adjoining parish centre.
