The Temple of Light has won an @azuremagazine AZ People's Choice Award. Link in bio. Many thanks to everyone who voted! . The temple is built of eight doubly-curved petals of wood and gypsum. The geometry of the petals is shaped from many related factors—from spiritual ideals to site conditions, from natural light to the intrinsic bending properties of plywood. . The complex, curvilinear geometry of this project was achieved with relatively modest means and conventional building materials by fabricating its sweeping petal-like forms utilizing principally straight engineered timber elements. These straight members were arranged along continuously sweeping rule lines that reside on the dome's fluid surfaces. The petals were fabricated at @spearhead ca just across Kootenay Lake before being craned into place on site and finished. . For more on the innovative geometric and fabrication aspects of the project, check out our book Material Operations! . . . #patkauarchitects #materialoperations @yasodharaashram #yasodharaashram #templeoflight #temple #light #architecture #naturallight #landscape #form #prefabrication #ruledsurface #doublecurvature #wood #timber #houseofworship #meditation #yoga #yogi #ashram #yogapractice #kootenaybay #kootenays #britishcolumbia #beautifulbc #explorebc #explorecanada #canada

The Temple of Light has won an @azuremagazine AZ People's Choice Award. Link in bio. Many thanks to everyone who voted! . The temple builds from the remnants of the original Temple of Light, which was lost to fire in 2014. The new design retains the original foundations and eight-lobed plan layout, with the complex form of the petals springing from its generous base. . . . #patkauarchitects #materialoperations @yasodharaashram #yasodharaashram #templeoflight #temple #light #architecture #naturallight #landscape #form #prefabrication #ruledsurface #doublecurvature #wood #timber #houseofworship #meditation #yoga #yogi #ashram #yogapractice #kootenaybay #kootenays #britishcolumbia #beautifulbc #explorebc #explorecanada #canada

The Temple of Light has won an @azuremagazine AZ People's Choice Award. Link in bio. Many thanks to everyone who voted! . Open to sky, to horizon, to every direction in welcome; on a fixed axis, in free form, turning to all in support of an enduring vision; a place to collect and to introspect. The complex geometry of the worship space provides the community with new opportunities for celebration, music, and dance that are directly enhanced by the fluid form of the space. . . . #patkauarchitects #materialoperations @yasodharaashram #yasodharaashram #templeoflight #temple #light #architecture #naturallight #landscape #form #prefabrication #ruledsurface #doublecurvature #wood #timber #houseofworship #meditation #yoga #yogi #ashram #yogapractice #kootenaybay #kootenays #britishcolumbia #beautifulbc #explorebc #explorecanada #canada

Thank you to Pete Wenger, Patkau Architects, for an insightful look into a tactile vs tech approach to material exploration and form. A hands-on approach producing innovative, if serendipitous, techniques and design directions.
