October 22, 2017 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Baha’u’llah, Prophet-Founder of the Baha’i Faith. The commemoration of this event is a major milestone for the Baha’i world community of which I am a member. My contribution to the commemoration activities is a conceptual design for a Baha’i House of Worship set in 2117 AD. In the  Baha’i calendar, the year will be 274 BE (Baha’i Era).  The design is inspired by the Baha’i House of Worship near Stuttgart, Germany: http://bahaiblog.net/site/2016/06/10-gorgeous-photos-inside-bahai-temple-germany/.  The perforated pattern covering much of my conceptual design as based on an illustration by the 20th century Persian Baha’i architect Ehsan S. Saeian.
