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 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.

'SACRED SPACES. Contemporary Religious Architecture' showcases 30 of the most breath-taking, innovative, iconic and undiscovered examples of contemporary religious architecture, including work by well-known architects alongside emerging designers. The range of projects includes buildings for all major religions, places of mass worship, intimate chapels, cemeteries, mausoleums and memorials, each documented with lavish, in-depth photography and drawings
