In: Projects, Sacred

The design of the centre emerged from the understanding of geometric symbolism for instance, the curvature of the front of the centre (when approaching) suggests a welcoming ‘embrace’ with open arms to visitors both members and those who are curious and wants to know more. Sacred spaces on the grounds have a circular plan to form focal points of the centre – namely the Ancestral Shrine and the Sacred Hall (Prayer hall). The circular form represents ‘togetherness’ and ‘wholeness’ – at One.
