How do buildings affect us? On Radio 3 we are exploring the impact of the built environment on our lives, and the importance of architecture. For this site we want to hear about the buildings you love, and the spaces that inspire you ... and to provide an expanding archive of interviews with architects, debates and features on architecture.
Night Waves explores the architecture of four sacred buildings, and how they relate to the beliefs of those who worship in them.
