Re 517 Workshop

Have you ever felt your curiosity might be playing with you? It happened to me many times. As a Christian designer, who has knowledge in Architecture, believe that God himself is an architect. In the beginning, he designed everything, he even had a deadline, 6 days. I think in everything that we do in life, we try to connect it to what we believed in. In my career in architecture, I believe that God is in it. Every time I design, I want to make sure that I consult the best Architect out there. Architecture is one of the most powerful forms of art. It has the power to shape our experiences, shape our environment, and even shape our spirituality.

In this world, where art is booming, can we really find God’s design especially in architecture? In this blog post, I will share with you the ways in which I have found God’s design in architecture.

Nature as Inspiration

As a believer of God, I know that God created the whole world in a snap. The book of Genesis described the process of all our world’s creation. From the light to darkness, from trees to animals, from nothing to something. It’s crazy that it’s so easy for us to say those things, but we forget to look around and felt the whole world as God’s creation. Our world, our nature is the most extra ordinary, awesomely beautiful for it is perfect by its own. The idea of creation, often times inspired by nature.

Artist around the world, uses nature as an inspiration. Architects, designers, painters, sculptures, singers, dancers, even content creator in this modern times.  One of the most beautiful aspects of architecture is its ability to connect us with nature. Whether it’s through the use of natural light, the incorporation of natural materials, or the creation of spaces that bring us closer to the outside world. This is why a good architecture can help us feel more connected to God’s creation and ultimately connect to God.

As an Architectural designer, the uses of the nature in designing buildings, can be seen in implementing windows that allow natural light to flood into the space. This not only creates a more welcoming and uplifting environment, but it also helps us find God’s design in our building.

Simplicity and Humility

As Christians, we are called to live lives of simplicity and humility. Not just a way of living, but also in character and behavior. The Bible always guides and reminded us that the things in this world don’t last and will always be a temporary. So, we focus more on what is important. Our relationship to one another to God. As simple as that, it takes tons of humility, perseverance, and obedience. This is reflected in the way that we approach architecture as well. We often strive for minimalism and simplicity in design. I find that this not only creates a more peaceful and serene environment, but it also allows us to focus more on our spiritual journey.

In addition, humility is an important element of architecture as well. We must always remember that we are not the creators of the spaces we design, but merely the stewards of them. How would we handling the space that God given us. We designers create a way in which simplicity and humility interact to only honoring God alone. God’s design of simplicity and humility can always be found in Architecture.

God’s design in Community

Finally, architecture has the power to bring people together and create communities. This is especially true when it comes to designing churches and other places of worship. Bringing people together and creating a communities will always be part of architectural goal in any project. By creating spaces that are welcoming, inclusive, and designed for community engagement, we can help create a sense of belonging and connection that is essential for our growth. Homes are the most basic example of bringing the family together by creating a space designed for family growth.

As Christians, we are called to be a part of a larger community of believers. By designing spaces that foster this sense of community and connection, we can help bring people closer to God and to one another.

Architecture is a powerful tool that can help us connect with God’s creation, live lives of simplicity and humility, and foster a sense of community and connection. Whether you are an architect, a designer, or simply someone who appreciates beautiful spaces, I hope that this post has inspired you to see God’s design in the world around us.
