Uniting eight faith communities under one roof also means finding a symbol that works for everyone beyond the religions. The circle symbolises infinity. 

In Buddhism, the open circle is a sign of a never-ending journey to becoming whole. Water is a symbol of new life and life itself. Here, the circle of buildings for the religious communities opens to the lake, thus to the water.

A garden on the roofs of the buildings connects everything with each other and the mesh of steel that spans everything, with its lightness combined with stability and transparency, stands for the faith that connects all religious communities with each other and figuratively stands for the desire for simplicity in the connection and understanding of the faiths among and with each other.
