I just wanted to wish a hearty welcome to those new readers who heard my interview this morning on EWTN Sacred Heart Radio. Just as an introduction, I am a graduate of the University of Notre Dame's classical architecture school, currently living and working in Milwaukee at a very fine traditional architecture firm, where I am involved in a number of current and pending sacred architecture projects (as well as several secular residential ones as well). I have written a number of articles on traditional liturgical planning and architectural design in scholarly journals such as Antiphon
and Sacred Architecture
, as well as pieces on related subjects for Dappled Things
(my most recent article here
), First Things
and elsewhere. You can also find me on the New Liturgical Movement
website quite frequently, as I am their architectural critic. I am also an artist and illustrator, and my work is in collections from California to England to Austria.
While, through the firm I work for, I am soon to be involved in at least one traditional sacred architecture design (more on that in the future), I recently saw the completion of much of my furnishing designs for the newly-restored historic Catholic cathedral in Vladivostok, Russia, Most Holy Mother of God Catholic Church. You can find photographs of it at the Vladivostok mission's website
, and I hope to post on it in the near future.
