A successful work of art can be effective in multiple ways: visual, psychological, symbolical, etc. Hence, in all historical periods, religion used art for the representation of its symbols. The question of how to design spaces for religious use turns to be a challenging one. Probably because, historically, religious architecture obtains strong public character, but also deep psychological, symbolic and cultural significance. It is approached as one of the most noticeable architectural manifestations of each epoch. For my M.Arch thesis I proposed a design for a worship space at the Holywood hills, in Los Angeles, California.
