    Please check out my recent blog post on the Huaxiang Christian Community Center in Fuzhou, China, by INUCE Architects.
    What are some designs that you've encountered or created that allow a religious community to be both set apart and welcoming?

    Cameron - Nice case study of a very interesting building. I particularly like the use of the roof as well as the interior detailing of the ceilings. Thanks for a nice essay.
