Designing Sacred Architecture through the Senses

What makes architecture sacred? That spirituality that a “place” makes you feel often serves to inspire and provoke memory through the senses. By capturing and triggering important memories, architecture can bring people together to unite individual memories into a collective memory. Architecture can allow important moments to live on, sacredly, in this way.

In some regard, all good architecture has a spiritual quality about it. Such architecture triggers our senses to experience in renewed ways. However, sacred architecture can provide for a more spiritual journey as occupants interact and travel through a “space”.

Did you know that when humans look up they often experience a sense of awe? By tuning to occupant senses, sacred architecture can have a profound effect. Sacred architecture can transcend symbols by speaking a universal language that stirs spiritual experience through the senses.
