Shrine of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá: Plaza walls completed, trellis construction begins
Work on the plaza walls of the Shrine of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá has been completed, marking a new stage of the construction, and the complex process of building the intricate trellis that will span the central plaza has begun.
Once finished, the trellis will connect the main edifice to the surrounding berms. The current stage of the process includes placing the first of many precisely prepared blocks of expanded polystyrene that will make up the formwork for the trellis.
As the project presses on, Bahá’í communities around the world are preparing to commemorate the centenary of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s passing in November and reflecting on His extraordinary qualities of character and exemplary life of service to humanity.
Recent developments on the site are featured in the images that follow.
