travel world architecture religious

Good religious architecture takes design one step further and requires that it both shelter and relay the essence of a faith.
While not a member of organized religion, where ever I travel I make a point to visit the local churches where I hope to
get insight to the culture and the history of it's people.

The ratings shown on these projects are an expression of my own personal tastes and evaluations.
Was the project groundbreaking? Were the spaces inspirational? Was there order and consistently in the design?
How well were the details handled? How was art integrated into the structure?
