We’ve been mentioning how intrigued we are by religious structures and places of worship. Though I attended a private Catholic university, I don’t necessarily consider myself religious. When in college, many of my friends and I would consider ourselves spiritual and this was widely accepted by our university – a university that was already considered progressive.
Though we admire traditional religious spaces, I gravitate towards the modern. The Oikumene Church in Indonesia is made entirely of locally sourced wood waste. Since the roof is constructed at different height levels, it means that the space inside can remain cool even when temperatures rise to 90 degrees Fahrenheit and high humidity.
