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 is suitable for anyone one of any skill level interested in how people shape space that supports the celebration of their faith and spirituality.
This class does not require professional experience in architecture or design. All experience levels welcome. Ages 8-11 are welcome when accompanied by an adult participant; 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, and sharing of “out-of-class” projects.
When is class time?
9:45am – 12:45pm (Pacific Time), Monday through Friday, June 22-26, via Zoom
What can I expect to create?
Students will be asked to create journal entries and sketches and to create digital images (photos) and do online exploration of religious, sacred or environmental images.
What should I bring to class?
Any tools (paper, pads, sketchbooks, pencil, pen, etc.) that can be used to sketch, journal, including digital formats. A phone with a camera or digital camera would be helpful.
