Our Lady of The Rosary-Hrajel by Marwan Zgheib

Marwan Zgheib Creates The Our Lady of The Rosary-Hrajel Church

Marwan Zgheib, the architect of the awarded design Church by Marwan Zgheib explicates, The Our Lady of the Rosary - Hrajel Church is a powerfully sculptural, symbolic representation of ascent and resurrection amidst the rocky mountainous landscape. The architecture uses simple yet grand means to evoke the desired religious effect. The austere building volume appears as a stairway towards heaven, a recurring biblical metaphor symbolizing spiritual ascent. This sloping façade which also serves as the roof of the structure is based around a triangular geometry as a representation of the Holy Trinity, one of the cornerstones of Catholic belief..
