Synopsis

This timely book reflects an awakening of interest in religious faiths and the emergence of a 'global exchange of architecture and culture. While Spain's Rafael Moneo has recently completed a cathedral in Los Angeles, Britain's Thomas Heatherwick is designing a Buddhist temple in Japan, John Pawson is working on a Cistercian monastery in the Czech Republic and Richard Meier has completed his Jubilee Church in Rome. It seems, as one Wallpaper[registered] pundit commented, 'religion is getting a redesign' and the architect's faith is as unimportant as his or her nationality. I Looking at ways in which contemporary architects are approaching religious or meditative space, this book focuses on churches, chapels, temples, synagogues and mosques that have been built in the last few years and that represent a late-twentieth/early-twenty-first century aesthetic. These buildings demonstrate how new ideas and developments in urban, domestic and public architecture are being used to inform design that is intended for inspiration, worship or meditation.

The text discusses the ways in which architects manipulate light and space and considers the placement of these buildings in their surroundings.

Einleitungssatz
Architecture is asked to deliver many things to many people -shelter, comfort and perhaps beauty, expanding to more specialized programmatic or formalistic requirements. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

I was disappointed. There were some good photos 14. April 2015
Von David Monk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I was so excited to see this book, but honestly, I did not end up loving this book. I was disappointed. There were some good photos. Many of them did not feel particularly Sacred and lost the heart and soul of the sacred and mostly just were modern buildings without much heart and soul. There were some exceptions, but they were fairly few and far between. I would not recommend this book at this point.

If you are in the architectural industry and inspired by a variety of modern designs, this book may not be a bad purchase. What I would recommend for those seeking interior architecture that has a spiritual tone generally, the work of Axel Vervoordt in Wabi Inspirations and Living with Light are more what I would look for for inspiration even though they are not religious spaces. There are other good home books which also would be more inspiring in terms of what would be potential including Clodagh's books 'Total Design' and 'Your Home Your Sanctuary' which both have more heart and soul, although again are home books and thus would need adaptation.
