The topic of this essay is the meaning of „place“ in context of sacral architecture. The meaning of „place“ is given as ambivalental relation of context as already-defined and architectural act (architectural, urbanistic, liturgical) which is intending to mediate „novum“ given as destiny of lingistic phenomenon itself. Phenomenon of sacral points to phenomenon of Man iteself which finds its truth of Being in ex-statical – transcedenting already given context. Transcednig is aiming at crossing horiziont as act of formulating place-meaning. It is impossible to define sacral architecture as set of liturgical rules and functions. Its truth is in blending of subjectiv and objective as symbolic place od experience, place of transcedenting, place of living meaning which make relation between man and sacral. While its vocabulary must be contemporary sacral architecture must be aware of its tradition where it finds its roots as genius loci. Architectural discours of 20th century is marked by two dominant theoretical concepts – functionalism and formalism both of which are onticaly and not ontologicaly rooted. But sacral architecture implies ontological approach which is only capable of „switching man's horizontal plane of understanding to vertical one“. Sacral phenomenon is not obtainable rationaly. Because of that it relays on symbol as mediator between already-given and novum – not-yet-given. Symbol is place of meeting with completly-otherness. Sacral space is conglomerate of manyfold meanings – architectural, urbanistical, liturgical, teological. All of that is nessecery to establish proper symbol which opens phenomenon of sacal. To make proper sacral space both architectural virtue and openess to phenomenon of sacral is necessery. It is impossible to create defined system which always results with proper sacral space. It is always dependent od free architectrual intutition opened to sacral phenomenon itself. Le Corbusier, protagonist of functionalism in architecture, when confronted with demand to create sacral space, refuse to apply functionalistic approach and transpone sacral phenomenon in fascinating way in architectural form. Proper sacral spaces in all religions share a common essence: pointing to completely-otherness and then they become architecture.
