On Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi, the Abrahamic Family House headquarters has been inaugurated. It embodies the historical bonds linking three Abrahamic religions – Judaism , Christianity, and Islam – and provides a platform for dialogue and coexistence. The complex embraces a church, a mosque, and a synagogue on a one-level plinth that contains a library and exhibition galleries. Despite a seeming simplicity, each of the three cubes is defined by its own orientation and its use on the outside of a particular construction element: limestone pilasters in the church, elongated arches in the mosque, and V-shaped columns in the synagogue.
