Globalisation has not dimmed, but rather fueled the presence of mainstream religions, accompanied now by other forms of confession, and this liturgical impulse is expressed in buildings that channel spirituality through reinterpretations of traditional types or explorations of new solutions. Here presented eight spaces for the spirit, located on four continents. In Dhaka, Marina Tabasum designed an abstract mosque; in Sakharwadi, sP+a erected a Buddhist center; in Saitama, Nakamura & NAP built a multidenominational worship place; in Christchurch (New Zealand), Shigeru Ban has put up a temporary cathedral, and four more.
