Страници: 85-94


The social and political changes in the world dictate new approach and interpretation of the essence of architecture and its unbreakable unity with nature. In my dissertation “Ancient cult buildings and their contemporary architectural analogues” I discuss the necessity of a reconsideration of the term “contemporary sacral space” and propose a definition that is in correspondence with the changed social environment. In my research I have noticed and described a pattern in the design of the sacral spaces that applies architectural models from the ancient cult buildings and creates atmosphere that inspires the connection with Nature. My arguments are based on architectural examples built in the last two decades, as well as on the recent works of scholars, that make obvious the inevitability of considering the contemporary sacral space outside the dogmas of the religions, but rather in conformity with the modern man. This article is a part of series of studies, entitled “Morphology of the contemporary sacral space”. The purpose of the research is to organize and analyze a group of contemporary spaces, selected by their objective characteristics (situation; purpose; composition; materials; facades; interior) to prove the above mentioned tendency in the contemporary sacral architecture, and to define a wider frame for the term “contemporary sacral space”. In this article I analyze the architecture of two buildings – SKYSPACE Lech and WRIT IN WATER, to recognize them as contemporary sacral spaces.
