I believe it is the newest church in Rome from 2003. I would love to see it! I am not a big fan of modern churches. Those few I saw... well they were more or less disasters. But this one looks really great (on the pictures). Were you there? Because if not, you missed this:

Modern churches at "eastern" Europea are growing quickly like mushrooms after rain. Each village despite having beautiful old church wants to build a new one (even if less people attend masses each year). It is almost like a competition in who will have the biggest one. So only the quantity is important. No wonder those churches will never have a dignity church should have. Of course it is not possible anymore to build in baroque style. Modern architecture must try to find and define its own ways of expression. There's no today Bernini or Caravaggio. Could be a risky experiment trying to decorate church by non-genius artist. (Of course sometimes it happens and the result can be great.) Architecture works with space. If modern church is only a white box, you cannot expect people feeling good there. And in church you should have that "special feeling". Otherwise you don't need church as a building, I believe any tent would be enough.
I haven't been in Jubilee Church. It is not yet noted in guides. It should be. Everybody should go there. From photos it looks like a real masterwork. A work of a Genius. His name is Richard Meier.
