Grace-St, Luke’s Episcopal

Grace-St. Luke'sThis is my latest completed design work for a Memphis makeover of Grace-St. Luke Episcopal Church in 2015-2016 that turned out stunning. Though lighting was just one aspect of the design, its power to transform space can’t be downplayed. If that was all that was accomplished, this project would still have been a success.

THE POETICS OF CHRISTENDOM: The Trinity, the Incarnation and the Origin of Architectural Creation


My many heartfelt thanks to Thomas Gordon Smith who taught me that an architect’s vocation is fundamentally one of servant-hood – who taught me that the origin of the work of great architecture exists in that space between a patron and his servant. It is here that the virtuous architect mediates the Christ-like role as both teacher and servant. Wisdom determines when the architect is which, but architecture is still always a communal event. This, in the end, is the Christian’s lifelong walk along the road that has just begun. Soli Deo Gloria.
