Churches in the modern world

A current exhibition (http://www.thelighthouse.co.uk//visit/exhibition/churches-in-the-modern-world1) at the Lighthouse in Glasgow presents case study buildings which illustrate how some post-war church architects and their clients in the UK moved away from tradition and conservatism to modernity. It explores the wider context of religious, social and urban change, and is one of the outcomes of an Arts and Humanities Research Council supported project led by Dr Robert Proctor of the Mackintosh School of Architecture. On 26 September at 6pm there will be a seminar at the Lighthouse with three speakers, including Bob Proctor, Dominic Wilson talking about F X Velarde, and Diane Watters on Scottish church architecture.
