The legendary Austrian-based architecture firm Coop Himmelb(l)au recently finished their Martin Luther Church in Haingurg, Austria, and it’s absolutely incredible.  The design of the curvy roof was carefully considered, with its three large openings providing natural daytime light to enter the building in an extraordinary way.  The structure of the complex form was built and assembled quite far from the site using ship-building metal-processing and construction technologies, and it rests upon four vertical supports.
