Architecture and religion have always shared a strict relation, due to the need of creating a space for the divulgation of the precepts and for the support for the community. Designing a building in a multi-faith environment gives you the chance to reflect on the mere meaning of religion itself, releasing it from all the architectural typologies usually linked to it. That is why we proposed a neutral and powerful volume, a building that tries to provide a sense of community without the typical religious architecture elements. The complex is meant to be a fulcrum for Tanaf, suitable for every confessions according to the different rituals, throughout the different moments of the week. Willing to create a place for the entire community, a place for hope and reflection, we exploited the intervention area providing a public plaza that relates directly to the city not only in terms of religion.
