Seminar: Spiritual Space: Modern Houses of Worship

This course focuses on key examples of spiritual space from the 20th and 21st century, with particular attention to the relationship between historical precedents and Modernist innovations in abstract form across multiple traditions of worship. We will look at what makes for a spiritually inspiring building or landscape, examining the strategies that architects and planners have used in the past. We will take field trips to local sites.
