Architecture, Faith and Community


Spiritual and religious spaces signify the value and importance of faith and connection at the heart of a community.

In a changing global context, the design, status and use of places of worship evolves to reflect the diverse needs of a wider public. Faith spaces are reimagined to foster a culture of mutuality and engagement, facilitating the growth of social capital.
