This is a church that even an atheist would like! Believe me, I know what I’m saying! You just can’t overlook the fact that it has that “je ne sais quoi” that you can’t define and, still, it lures you inside.
The principle behind this amazing construction is interaction. It offers the perfect opportunity for people to interact with each other at a horizontal level and, in the same time, it facilitates the communication with the Divinity, at a vertical level.
This new Scarborough Chinese Baptist Church, designed by Teeple Architects, puts an end to the belief that churches must be sober, traditional, with a vintage look and all sorts of decorations that almost make them look like a museum.

The majestic structure perfectly reunites two completely different worlds: the mysterious and obscure land of faith and the brutally real outside world, the past and the present, the old and the modern, all in only one place.
