The translucent church measures 5 by 6 by 8 meters and includes a steeple and arched operable doors, with space inside that can hold up to 30 people for a variety of events. The temporary pavilion deflates for easy transport and pops up upon arrival in no time at all. The interior is left open to play host to lectures, talks, community discussions, music and more.

During the day, natural daylighting filters through the material and keeps the space warm like a greenhouse. Fans often have to be brought in to help keep the space cool. At night, interior lights light up the church and make it glow like a lantern.

Los tells us, “In the Transparent Church questions are raised about our most solid convictions. This creates a space where one can discover that life can be easier and more enjoyable. The Transparent Church is available as a Theater Show, a Presentation or to facilitate meaningful discussions and experiences.”
