We are excited to welcome back Liturgical Architect Paul Barribeau this summer! Paul is a Senior Project Manager at Groth Design Group, an architectural firm in Cedarburg, WI, focused on serving religious clients and community-based organizations.
The places and spaces that inspire people of faith share commonalities with built form, have connections to the physical environment of creation, and engage the sensory experience of the arts.
Focusing on sacred spaces and religious architecture, but applicable to any spiritual or artistic space, this class will explore 1) how “place” is marked and how symbol provides “presence,” “invitation,” and “witness;” 2) the ways in which light animates architecture and art, 3) the importance of threshold for transition between and journey through spaces–interior and exterior; and 4) how spaces are ordered for meaning and aligned to support human communal experience.
Class activity will balance instruction, insight and discussion with encounter, observation and documentation.
This class does not require professional experience in architecture or design. All experience levels welcome. Ages 8-12 when accompanied by an adult; solo participants ages 12+
What will class time be like? Will I need to work outside of class?
The class time will be a combination of presentation, discussion, sharing of “out-of-class” projects, and visits to spaces on campus and possibly off-campus.
Journal entries, sketches and digital images
What should I bring to class?
A camera or phone with a camera is very helpful.
Something with which to write. Students will be encourage to draw/sketch (though it is not required) so students who have drawing tools (or modeling tools) are encouraged to bring those.
