The jewel in the box is the name given to this specific project. The jewel which is the main building is located in the center of the project. There are storefronts on the first level, housing on the second and third, as well as an outdoor church and school exist around the main building. Located on levels two and three are walkways around the main building. The walkways make it easier to access the school, daycare, and on the third floor the outdoor church.

Multi Religious Church Homestead Street, Houston, TX Arch Summer Design Studio 2011 Ross Wienert This project is a nondenominational church located in a minority area. The overall idea behind the building was to include certain attributes of the low poverty neighborhood in combination and respect to the present prevailing winds. These two aspects helped shape and form many of the exterior and interior characteristics of the church. The arcs in front of the building help form a sense of entry into the building while the pool located near the seating area gives off a cool breeze with respect to the prevailing winds. Layers of light shelves and clerestories help bring light into the church.

Attention to Detail The proposed church, Located In Baltimore, MD, was assigned on July of 2010. The project came with several drawings that helped in illustrating just how the church was to be put together. These drawings included certain details such as materials to the actual height of the steeple. The church, from July to September, was given life in a 3D concept based off of precise 2D drawings.
