The design for the 100 Wall Church challenge what sacred spaces look like today. Within the church, no room is completely bound by four walls. Intentionally nebulous, each space oscillates from being partly contained to being loosely attached to something else. Each wall is placed in a singular direction so that the structure is completely opaque from one vantage and apparent from the opposite view. The church invites us to wander its grounds and discover sunken gardens, pockets of blue light, and an enigmatic profusion of talismanic walls. A multitude of doors and passages remind us that there are as many paths as there are lives, and that a sacred space today should draw out meaning in its inscrutability.
