Speaking of Beautiful Churches
Check out one of their most recent projects, St. John Neumann Catholic Church. It's a Romanesque church, seating 900, which includes a day chapel and adoration chapel. It will be finished in July, 2008.
This is the only reason I might ever want to move to Farragut, Tenn. But it is a very good reason.

The apse, with stone detail, red roofing tiles, and dome.
An exterior shot of the nave.
The center entrance portal, with carved Christ, as a veneer of stone is placed on the west facade. Such a veneer is a sin against the "architectural honesty" of the 50's and 60's, but I think we've all decided that an architectural white lie is better than telling the cold hard steely truth.
