Principles of Sacred Architecture Lecture

Thursday, 19 May, 7:00pm

Sponsored by The Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh
Duncan Stroik’s architectural practice grows out of a commitment to the principles of classical architecture and urbanism. For over a decade he has focused on the design of ecclesiastical which combine a passion for durability, function and beauty.  Stroik’s education and career have closely paralleled the evolution of the international classical movement, and over the past decade his work has been instrumental in the new renaissance of sacred architecture.  Stroik received his architectural education from the University of Virginia and Yale University. Following graduation, he served as a project designer for the architect Allan Greenberg, with whom he designed a number of prestigious projects. In 1990 Stroik was invited to help form and implement a new curriculum in classical architecture at the University of Notre Dame.
Stroik’s design work and essays on architecture have been featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the New Republic, Crisis, Inside the Vatican, Our Sunday Visitor and Catholic Dossier, and on PBS, and EWTN.  Projects by Stroik have been exhibited in Rome, Milan, Chicago, Bologna, Istanbul and Yale University. He lectures widely on the principles of traditional architecture and Catholic church design.  Stroik is considered to be one of the foremost educators and practitioners in Catholic architecture and is presently engaged in ecclesiastical projects for Wisconsin, Texas, Indiana, North Carolina, Missouri, and California.
