Postwar Churches Presentation in Albany on November 22nd

 

An important part of the Mid-Century Mundane study has been houses of worship. On November 22nd, I will be presenting a talk, The Architecture of Catholic Modernism In New York State: From Post War to Vatican II, as part of the New York State History Conference. More information can be found here. I will be discussing how church architecture evolved in New York State after World War II and how the Vatican II convening brought about an embrace of modern design in the building of churches. Featured prominently will be the work of John O’Malley, the architect for close to 100 Catholic buildings in New York City and Long Island, including American Martyrs Catholic Church, pictured above.
