THE IDEA OF THE HOLY BY THE WORLD'S GREATEST ARCHITECTS
A PORTFOLIO OF AROUND 30 REALISATIONS ACROSS THE GLOBE
STUNNING IMAGES PICTURING THE POWER OF SACRED BUILDINGS
Sacred spaces have a very special character and differ distinctively from any other building. Whether a synagogue, a church or a mosque, it is where architecture and theology meet, a platform fusing sacred and profane spheres embodied in a building. Designing a space for worship thus requires answering many challenging questions on the nature of sacred space dedicated to both individual prayers and celebrating a community. We look into the symbolic nature of nearly 30 realizations across the globe. These extraordinary examples of modern and contemporary sacred architecture reflect the idea of the holy by the world’s most famous and renowned architects.
