The Westminster Faith Exchange
First Class Honours
A new headquarters for the multi-faith congregations of the WFE, a council that promotes inter-religious community engagement in London. The building challenges the way we interpret contemporary spaces for worship, acknowledging the distinctions between beliefs whilst identifying places of common ground.
The building provides three prayer spaces, a community room for people of all and no faith, and offices for the council. The spaces of worship take precedent from the vernaculars of a Jewish synagogue, a Buddhist temple and a Christian church, without conforming to a singular typology. In connecting not only the faiths, but also the faithless, it is imagined that the Faith Exchange can become a place of learning, reflection, and the coming together of a richly diverse community.
