'Embodied Light' exhibition features Chile House of Worship

New Delhi,  5 November 2015, (Source BWNS) — The construction of South America's first Baha'i House of Worship has been at the center of an exhibition in Canada this week.

Titled 'Embodied Light: The Bahá'í Temple of South America', the exhibition features photos and material samples of the temple in Santiago and a lecture by the temple's architect, Siamak Hariri.

"The aim was to achieve an interplay of seeming contradictions: stillness and movement, simplicity and complexity, intimacy and monumentality, solidity and yet a building capable of dissolving in light," said Hariri, who spoke at the exhibition opening in Toronto on 29 October.

"The architectural challenge was to design a sister temple to the existing temple of North America, while also enabling it to find its own unique presence at the foot of the Andes."
