The Cathedral of Christ the Light
The new cathedral is located just 4.7 km from the Hayward fault and uses Friction PendulumTM seismic isolation bearings to protect it from damage during a 1000 year earthquake. The bearings support a 120 foot tall main sanctuary, which incorporates glulaminated timber, reinforced concrete, high strength steel, and aluminum and glass to create a light-filled structure.
