Design for worship

By Ingrid Fetell Lee

Recently, the website Science and Religion Today invited me to answer an intriguing question: what architecture or design works best for places of worship? I shared a few thoughts with them on aesthetic elements that tend to put people in a spiritual frame of mood, regardless of religion. Read my answer here.

What is your favorite place for spiritual communion? Why? I would love to hear your thoughts.

    I found about it in http://www.amazon.de/Neue-Architektur-Sakralbauten-Till-W%C3%B6hler/dp/3935455755. Great book full of fantastic photos. Each page is translated to English btw.

    I believe the picture you added to this post is there as well.
