Chamber church in Qingdao by Büro Ziyu Zhuang

An aluminium church in China features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features a church in Qingdao, China, designed by German-Chinese architecture practice Büro Ziyu Zhuang.

Büro Ziyu Zhuang has completed a church featuring walls and a tower made from dozens of spaced-out aluminium ribs.

The Chamber Church was designed as part of Chinese property developer Sunac's Aduo Town project in the Qingdao Zangma Mountain Tourism Resort.

Commenters are amazed. One said, "What an utterly beautiful structure".
