    The Calvinist church in Helvécia has been born as a building sounding the praises of God as the fruit of the inner spiritual motif driving and moving the faithful, leaders of the community, their pastor, sponsors and builders. Each participant is simultaneously a creator contributing to it either via donation, organisation and enthusiasm, by drawing the plans, or doing manual labour. Everyone concerned in this story is an architect. The church is beautiful, fitting its niche with the appropriate volume, featuring a well-proportioned spire visible from afar. Enriched with details that inspire one to contemplate whilst also doing credit to human work, the interior is both a receptive one inviting inside and turning up towards the skies. The building would not join a fashionable trend, and yet is highly educational. It is a timeless house, losing the significance of the date of its construction within a few decades: it simply builds in and evokes the archetypal church housed in the collective unconscious of mankind.
