Closer to God is a unique collection of international examples of sacred spaces of all denominations that were built in the last few years. Whether churches, synagogues, mosques, temple complexes, or other contemplative places for meditation and reflection, the architecture highlighted in this book ranks among the most exciting of our time. This book presents striking proof that contemporary religious structures are no longer bound by predominant styles. Rather, the explicitly expressive architectural language of sacred spaces at the start of the twenty-first century is shaped equally by respect for established traditions and forays into the visuality of the future.
