Cathedral of Hope- Interfaith Peace Chapel, Dallas, Texas
The Interfaith Peace Chapel is a modern worship space designed by Philip Johnson / Alan Ritchie Architects. It is an inspirational design of “sculpture as architecture”. Seating up to 175 people, the chapel provides ideal space for intimate worship services, commitment ceremonies and memorial services. Not tied to any one denomination, this Interfaith Peace Chapel is meant to serve all religions. Though the unique form is not tied to any particular religious architectural style, the intention is for the structure to be a blank canvas that will be inviting and comfortable for all religious groups.
The chapel will be a place where people of all faiths, or no faith, can participate in dialogue, meditation and prayer. The environment and surroundings will inspire people to join together in order to build understanding of similarities and differences. The Peace Chapel is the integral first phase of the Cathedral of Hope Master plan which includes a 40,000 square foot Cathedral designed by PJAR.
