Translucent stone and the newest glass technology create a means of generating and manifesting both the physiological and spiritual delights of natural light embodied in architecture in this South American Bahai Temple.
Set against the stirring background of the Andean mountain range, the new Temple is to be a crystallizing of light-as-expression, an evanescent structure of white alabaster and glass: a place of pure luminescence.
Quite different from our local Rainbow Temple in the Gold Coast / Byron Bay Hinterland conceived from a simple geometric progression. And far different from the Hindu Temple tradition.
There are some extra examples temple inspired designs at Architects Byron Bay.
