Abstract

Calm. Walk close the houses; do not refuse to shoulder the hands of the shadow and the sun. Go with Sophia Andresen and other poets. Dawns in on the reflection on contemporary religious architecture. Just sit down. Four architectural icons are offered: Terebinth, Tent, Temple, Body. Let yourself be contemplated until the great anamnesis is formed. It lights up maieutic questions. You will think with hope. And, with prophetic imagination, it points to the multisensory experience. Behold, the poetics of spatiality (ritual, artistic, linguistic, etc.) will be instituted, between memory and creation, at the pace of the previous question. It is in this path, sapiential and sacramental, that the text demands the atmosphere of religious architecture. If stripped of certainties and conceptual frivolities (from liturgies to ecclesiologies), the better. Averse to pragmatics, critical hermeneutics are taken care of, with instances of reform. Designed by Cerejeira Fontes Arquitectos atelier, in multidisciplinary dynamics, thus were born the chapels Tree of Life, Full of Grace and Immaculate of the Archdiocesan Seminars of Braga (Portugal).
