Sacred Places/Civic Spaces
was a partnership between the Community Design Collaborative and Partners for Sacred Places to re-envision underutilized purpose-built religious properties as community hubs, adding the design and development community’s voice to a growing dialogue about the intersection between historic sacred places and communities. This initiative was created to demonstrate that underutilized space in historic sacred properties can be activated by congregations in ways that fulfill their missions and strengthen communities.
