Path to the Shrine and Gymnasium Addition
For: BAPS Columbus LLC
Transformation of a former Jewish Synagogue into a Hindu Temple continues with this latest addition and renovation project. The new Shrine Room is to be located in a different part of the complex becoming a destination for worshipers who are led via an immersive, 3D corridor composed of an architectural system of frames and columns reinforced by a patterned carpet pathway. The new Shrine Room itself becomes a light filled, meditative haven for the faithful to worship, earn and reflect. An addition to the existing, temporary Shrine Room becomes a new gymnasium for the complex.
