The search for worthy shapes and structures to serve religious beliefs and rites led to many architectural milestones as well as pioneering technical and design developments. To this day, sacral buildings constitute the most prestigious, and at the same time most expressive, tasks for architects and designers.

Whether a tradition-based approach or an experimental play with shapes, whether the display of the greatest splendor or extreme minimalism - each presented project represents a very individual way of experiencing religion and spirituality."--Publisher description."@en ;
