Arc Beams

This temple is designed to create spaces where people pray while being enfolded by tender natural light.

Arc beams are placed in the axis from east to west, curved woods “Wavering Leaves” attached to them crush the skylight as well as strengthen the structure.

Enfolded by the tender light that is smashed and reflected by “Wavering Leaves”, people there feel like floating in the light.

When early in the evening, the space is filled with the light of setting sun and it would be illustrated by burning red color.
