The Church of the Holy Light gives visitors an escape from the ordinary and connects with the transcendent through sunlight. Worship spaces are lit through openings in the building’s faceted and folded shape. The facets work to shape the space and obscure the light sources. Throughout the hours of each day and the seasons of each year the sunlight changes the shape and perception of the sanctuary, in an ethereal testament to worship. In this way, the sanctuary embodies man’s understanding of the divine - abstract, felt without seen or understood.
