The three architects, Matthew Lloyd, Shahed Saleem and Daniel Leon, belong to different religious traditions and have drawn up plans for an exciting new building.
This is their film on a collaborative design for a single space that is a mosque on Fridays, a synagogue on Saturdays and a church on Sundays. From Monday to Thursday the building becomes a place for inter-faith interaction.
The building, even the idea of it, throws up all sorts of interesting ideas – practical, societal and theological – about how we live well together in London while remaining different.
LBFN’s event on 6th November (venue tbc) will be looking at some of them with Terry Biddington of the University of Manchester who has written a fascinating paper.
The following week, on Monday 11 November 7-8.30pm, the three architects are meeting at King’s College London (Strand campus) to talk through possible next steps. Download the invitation here and reply to Rosie Parker (who is part of ENORB and also curating the Women’s Interfaith Network’s art exhibition) if you’d like to attend.
