Sunken spiritual spiral could create soul-searching space in Brooklyn
Below the ground, the 12 Hebrew months would be engraved into the slab, radiating out from the base of the mikveh. The entire sunken structure of the Spiritual Spring is meant to amplify the formal characteristics of the mikveh itself, creating an earthen sanctuary protected from the din of the city streets. Ironically, perhaps, the structure will be composed of exposed concrete , not entirely dissimilar to many of the other structures in the neighborhood. Shor envisions the Spiritual Spring as a space for hosting women’s events, private educational tours, or components of academic seminars.
