Event description

Description

MYAA are an award-winning architectural practice, with a reputation for innovative faith buildings. The practice aims to make new kinds of religious architectures that are not closed denominational spaces, but open and hybrid, encouraging debate and interaction between faiths. This pop-up exhibition show-cases MYAA’s work, including the Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies and the North Harrow Community Centre (Salaam Centre), as well as their wider conceptual work on the relationships between faith, architecture and urban space. The exhibition also features ‘Architectures of Shared Space’, a set of designs and models for multi-faith buildings produced by sixth-formers from Brentside School in Ealing, as a collaborative public engagement project with MYAA and the Making Suburban Faith project, which is led by academics in the Geography Departments at UCL and Royal Holloway.

The day includes early-evening talks by Ali Mangera on MYAA’s approaches to new faith architecture (5:30pm) and Professor Gilbert from the Making Suburban Faith project on the ‘Architectures of Shared Space’ initiative (6:00pm). These talks will be followed by a Q&A and discussion session.
