Sacred pearls

/Ongoing project/

Most people think that architects build with materials such as concrete, stones, wood… I always thought the opposite, architecture is born from emptiness and therefore it is built from intangible materials such as light, space or time.

Now the question is how to build a light that can be touched? Or an air so thick that you feel it when you walk?

I have tried to investigate these questions and I have observed that if there is a typology where architects can play freely with all these elements, it is the religious one. That is why in the last few months I am mapping and documenting the most amazing pieces of religious architecture in Switzerland.

It will take me a while to show you more, so for now I will just leave you with a question. Can faith be built?
