Byzantine Church Design Critique I

In Judson University - Traditional Architecture & Urbanism, Uncategorized on October 20, 2010 at 7:00 am

St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Church in Elgin, Illinois recently asked for Judson University’s help in exploring possibilities for improving their campus. Following an extensive survey of the parish a new long-range planning study was completed, which the student designers in Judson’s fourth-year TAU studio are using as the basis for their design research. In addition to a variety of functional improvements, parishioners were clear in their desire for a beautiful temple reflecting the Byzantine heritage of the Orthodox faith that would signify the vibrant faith of their community and become a legacy for the church. Students have been working with the parish priest and various committees, and recently presented schematic concepts for review. Jurors included representatives from the parish committees,   Judson architecture professors Dr. Jhennifer Amundson, Dr. Christopher Miller, and Nathaniel Brooks, as well as TAU studio fellow and Judson graduate student Brian Mork.
