Sufism Reoriented Sanctuary

The Sufism Reoriented Sanctuary in Walnut Creek, California was designed by the renowned architectural firm of Philip Johnson/Alan Ritchie. The sacred design includes marble clad concrete domes surrounded by contemplative gardens. Smaller domes surround a 78' diamater central dome, and is bathed in light from a 20' diameter oculus. Two thirds of the building is subterranean and is covered in a green roof.
