About the book
Contemporary religious buildings have a profound influence on the architectural mainstream and offer an outlet for a more unrestrained approach to form and space making. Unshackled by functional constraints, the 30 iconic projects in this book, by some of todays best-known architects alongside innovative emerging designers, explore architectonic themes in sacred structures, whilst setting them in a modern historical context.
