An interfaith cooperation on environment, creation and sustainability
The Hope Cathedral is an interfaith, environmentally sustainable art project symbolizing the creation of hope through cooperation. It is open to all, a meeting place for people of all ages and across differences in culture and religion.
Inspired by Norway’s famous stave churches, the structure rises majestically on its 120 m2 barge made of timber and roots and built in traditional fashion. The roof is a 300 m2 multi-coloured work of art made of plastic taken from the ocean and subjected to an innovative transformation process. More than 1000 fish boxes have been washed, granulated and turned into 4000 roof tiles in more than 50 different colours.
