The visit of the Pope Benedict XVI to the Czech Republic in September 2009 was an opportunity to design an original temporary structure.

The design of a site for 50,000 visitors close to Stará Boleslav covered access roads, a turfed area divided into sectors, the central and side stages including decorations, sound distribution, and stage lighting. 
Part of the brief was to design of a papal altar for the mass administered by the Pope Benedict XVI including the Ambon and detailed arrangement of the altar area in prevailing white, dark red and gold colour.
