San Josemaría Escrivá Church

I'm continually impressed by the various religious edifices that I see. Although the rituals and beliefs of the denominations may be quite different, the emotion evoked by the architecture are very similar. This church by Javier Sordo Madeleno Bringas is a…

Star House

The name of this project, Star House, is slightly misleading if you are to understand it's true function. To understand this project one needs to consider the difference between "House" and "Home."
