Faile Temple

It’s not often I get excited, but today when news landed in my inbox of the art collective Faile’s latest project – the Faile Temple, my pulse quickened and I was frankly very, very excited!

The full-scale church in ruins in Praça dos Restauradores Square in Lisbon was in their own words “created in conjunction with Portugal Arte 10 in Lisbon. We’ve been working on this for some time as many of you know. After almost two years of concepts, sketches, grueling math, heavy lifting and three bouts of food poisoning (not in the Temple) it is finally here”.
