Hey all, I thought i'd start a new/fresh discussion...
One of my hopes is to become an architect and eventually design Orthodox Churches as well as smaller homes.
So I was wondering, what advice does everyone have on designing Orthodox Churches (as though I were doing it now)?
Also, just curious, does anyone attend a church of about 250? If so, how big is it? If possible, could you give me the dimensions of the nave?
In a world of increasing construction costs (at least in the U.S.) it becomes more and more difficult to construct traditional Orthodox churches in this country. How could we overcome the costs?
Lastly, is it better to have smaller churches or many large ones? Should they be concentrated in urban areas and rural towns or in suburbs?
Also, feel free to share your favorite things about Orthodox churches or beautiful exteriors/interiors
