Altering the Sacred

Churches today are increasingly empty.

While the outside structure adapted through time to architectural styles, the interior layout never did. While visually matching the outside, the interior still has the same ritualistic character it had centuries ago. For those who still seek the ritual, the spatial set-up still is valid, however for the many, such sacred spaces are more of a historical monument.

The research is about analysing the spatial layout of sacred spaces, in relation to individual and societal demands of today. Out of these findings I want to propose a new spatial layout for a sacred space.
