S. Carlo alle Quattro Fontane church - Borromini

Borromini's S. Carlo alle Quattro Fontane church, Rome, 1665-67 -- a masterpiece of Baroque architecture where light, texture, rhythm and vertical emphasis help give the building movement and delight; and the various motifs, intersecting spaces, unarticulated corners and undulating wall help to 'dematerialise' the enclosing exterior wall.
