Discovering Great Mormon Buildings

From Diversity to Unity: the Transition of LDS Meetinghouses from Beautiful to Functional

You are all invited to a presentation I will be offering next month in Ogden, Utah.
Date: Saturday, August 6th
Time: 2:00-3:00pm

The fate of LDS meetinghouses has followed the fate of design and construction in America with a move to the suburbs and standardization. Cost and functional requirements now trump aesthetic and spatial concerns in these packaged products sent to wards and stakes worldwide. The presentation will show distinctive features of LDS meetinghouses around the world, review standard plan development from its inception through today, show positive and negative consequences that have resulted from these correlated designs, and ask if it is possible to build both functional and beautiful standardized buildings.

Registration and Program links.
