This little place of worship is planned in a room in a building which is in an area that is currently under development. In the bible, you can find lots about the contrast of darkness and light. For example, “light shines in darkness” “God created light. God separates light and darkness” I wanted to create a space of prayer where inspired by words of the bible.

Dee and Charles Wyly Theater in Dallas, Texas by REX/OMA

 
December 11th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: REX/OMA

The Dallas Theater Center (DTC) is known for its innovative work, the result of its leadership’s constant experimentation and the provisional nature of its long-time home. DTC was housed in the Arts District Theater, a dilapidated metal shed that freed its resident companies from the limitations imposed by a fixed-stage configuration and the need to avoid harming expensive interior finishes. The directors who worked there constantly challenged the traditional conventions of theater and often reconfigured the form of the stage to fit their artistic visions. As a result, the Arts District Theater was renowned as the most flexible theater in America. The costs of constantly reconfiguring its stage, however, became a financial burden and eventually DTC permanently fixed its stage into a “thrust-cenium.”
