HWKN designs a speculative Jewish Holy Temple amongst the New York skyline

As a part of a book called “Unscrolled,” which reimagines and reinterprates the Torrah, New York based architects HWKN have created an immense monument based on a description in the T’rumah which details of how to construct a sanctuary where sacred objects like the Holy Grail could be stored.

HWKN though has taken en extremely contemporary take, flipping the monument on it’s side and brining it’s glory to the New York skyline. What I love about this project is how seriously they took the brief, creating something that’s almost believable however ridiculous it may be. Still, I’m not a religious person, but I think something like this would be incredible to see built in real life, a true vision of spirituality created in a modern light.
