Sacred Spaces in Profane Buildings

A few weeks ago we took a trip with our history of architecture professor to the Storefront for Art and Architecture to see the Sacred Spaces in Profane Buildings exhibit.  The project includes 4 different "spiritual devices" - modules containing the bare essentials needed for the prayer rituals of Christianity, Islan, Buddhism, and Sikhism - designed by artist Matilde Cassani, which were on view in the storefront, and a website of a collection of hidden spaces in New York City dedicated to different religious beliefs.
