House of Worship: Sacred Spaces in America

Available

Description

The sacred buildings of America churches, synagogues, temples, mosques, meetinghouses are as diverse as the people they serve. In this book, we hear from architects, designers, clergy, and congregations as we explore and reflect on the intersection of faith, design, and community. We visit a variety of houses of worship across the nation, from a Quaker meetinghouse built in 1694 to a Baptist church constructed by slaves and a synagogue completed at the end of the twentieth century.
