Text written by Susanna Davies-Crook

In MULTIFAITH, Snow and Tynan consider the utilitarian, and increasingly ubiquitous, design of the multi-faith room. Now present at many public sites, both institutional and commercial, this space for contemplation for people of faith and no faith predicates an emptying out and negation of bias. Here, Snow and Tynan extricate the room from its globalised ‘non-space’ habitat (shopping centre, airport lounge, football stadium), and consider it on its own terms so we can unpick the lineage of this design and consider how spaces act upon us.
