Life is going to be pretty wild for me the next couple of weeks, and posting will be scarce. By way of an explanation, I offer this first drawing from my in-progress thesis project, a hypothetical seminary for a Tridentine order based in the Midwest. The good Fathers are not in the market for a seminary right now (so don't go starting rumors!) but they've been ever so helpful in advising me in my theoretical design process. This particular design is an underlay drawing for a watercolor which will show the dome and high altar of the seminary's chapel. Precedents included Austrian and northern Italian baroque, and the local beaux-arts architecture of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
