Pray & tell
The project occurs under the task of creating ‘a temple for the future’ using modern materials which feels both spiritual and accessible, generating a modern religious institution to revitalize the spirit of the community.
The design directions are considered and methodical, but never losing the innate sense of openness. Lacquered wood cladding, sweeping roofs, vaulted ceilings, textured walls, and tapestries that tell a story showcase all the accents in the spaces for quiet reflection and prayer.
By superimposing new values on building types that tend to be caught up in fixed ideas of religious facilities, it induces usage that is different from before, and from this, new values are born and overlapped again.
