The “rock church“ was designed in 1995 by Werner Schmidt for the Protestant parish in Cazis.
Construction started in April 1996: 108 different wooden elements were placed on a foundation like slices of an orange, covered with a fine-meshed metal grid and then coated with shotcrete until a thickness of 15cm. In January 1998 the church was put into operation with a provisional heating system.
Architect Diederik Peper from Chur completed the interior finish of the rock church and it was officially inaugurated in January 2002.
