A Catholic architect calls for churches to look like churches
More than a few architects hired to design recent Orthodox churches could heed his advice as well.
Though what I would call "recent" would encompass at least three decades. Seems in my neck of the woods, the newer the church, the ghastlier its architecture. Another consequence of bad church architecture are the terrible acoustics, requiring the installation of sound systems and microphones, which are never tuned properly in any Orthodox church I've set foot into which has them. Makes for an experience of frustration, not prayerful dignity.
