A leading Catholic architect named Duncan G. Stroik is making the case for bringing back traditional church design. Are there any churches today that have been built in modern times which can be considered objectively beautiful? Does the inside of these modern constructed churches “contribute to an atmosphere of transcendence”? When Catholic churches are built today do you think the architecture should return to traditional church design? Does the Catholic Church need an art revival? Do these churches draw in the sacred? Could restoring traditional church design help spread the Gospel and contribute to conversions?
