Sacred Space

This book was published to accompany a photographic exhibition, also called ‘Sacred Space’. Concerned with the contemporary making and unmaking of sacred space in Dublin, it showcases the work of communities, architects, photographers and academics, celebrating the diversity and potential for inter-culturalism of cities in general – and of Dublin in particular.

Captured in stunningly colourful and captivating photographs by Dublin photographer Eugene Langan, the publication explores the creative re-appropriation of existing space into religious space, such as the ‘mosque above the shop’ or the ‘church in the warehouse’. The use of former light-industrial or underused buildings by Ireland’s diverse religious communities is a growing phenomenon.

A 48-page section of essays is printed on 120gsm Popset Cloud, while the book’s gatefold cover is bound with black tape.
