to vast in religious thinking, an attempt to rethink, and ultimately
explode and recreate religious typology in architecture as it exists
becomes necessary. An intense review on existential and pragmatic
religious literature leads to the conclusions that the subject of sacred
architecture has changed, creating a need to develop a new typology.
After arguing the justification of this rethinking, the project examines
religious typology as it currently exists and its relationship between
shared memory and sacred spaces. Finally, the ideas gleaned are applied
to three distinct urban fabrics in attempt to further analyze the space
and produce prototypical objects for three urban conditions.
