by Siamak Hariri, arquitect. Hariri Pontarini Architects.Toronto.


 A temple of light expressing a faith of inclusion is poised to become an architectural landmark in Chile and world-renowned. Set within the Andean foothills, the complex curved shelter is designed by the distinguished Canadian architect Siamak Hariri as an invitation to spiritual contemplation and pilgrimage. Siamak is going to share with us his 14 year journey to create the South American Bahá’í House of Worship, the last of the eight continental temples commissioned by the Bahá’í Community.
