The Rosebud Orthodox Church Burgeons Like a Modern Bulb

Religion may be as old as the ages, but the architecture of its home needs not harken to the past. The Rosebud Orthodox Church looks nothing like how one would expect a chapel to appear, yet the concept would successfully fulfill the needs of the contemporary congregation within it.

Designers Danika Voorhees and Sofia Borges developed this truly unique structure, inspired by an organic form much older than man himself and exuding a mystical mien that can only be described as supernatural. The blossoming cathedral building looks to be enclosed by a cluster of clasped flower petals, in a constant state of germination, fed by the culture-rich activities within. Nicknamed 'Ghostly Illumination,' the Rosebud Orthodox Church is further enhanced with a spiked skin and long slit windows that emit a violet glow.
