Organized by: The Architecture Foundation
Venue: , Grand Junction at St. Mary Magdalene's

Staged in the newly refurbished undercroft of one of London’s greatest nineteenth century churches, this exhibition will address the changing nature of sacred architecture in Britain through the presentation of 25 buildings designed in the past decade.


Congregation presents examples of how faith groups, faced with unsupportable maintenance costs of their existing buildings, have developed new models of survival through the integration of secular spaces. The selected projects capture a visible statement of Britain’s developing multi-culturalism, and explore how attitudes towards questions of tradition, reform, integration and ornamentation are expressed in a new generation of religious buildings.


This exhibition has been organised by Architecture Foundation in collaboration with Paddington Development Trust.
