Seminar on Orthodox Church Architecture at St. Vladimir's June 25, 2011
- Dear Friends of St. Vladimir's,
On Saturday, June 25, 2011, Andrew Gould, a designer at the firm New
Byzantine World in Charleston, SC, will present an overview of the
history and development of Orthodox Christian church architecture, on
the campus of St. Vladimir's Seminary, 575 Scarsdale Rd., Yonkers, NY.
Mr. Gould is known for designing several Orthodox Christian temples,
includingHoly Ascension Orthodox Church in Charleston.
Mr. Gould will focus on the continuous revival of an Imperial Roman
aesthetic in Byzantium and an exploration of how that aesthetic has been
adapted by nations that had different climates and building
technologies. He also will explore how Old World architecture is now
being combined with American architectural traditions and building
practices, and will discuss the interior furnishings typically found in
Orthodox churches, including frescoes, icons, vestments, and furniture.
The fee for the seminar is $10 and includes lunch.
