The Rehabilitation and Restoration of Sacred Spaces
June 2012 Issue of Preservation Architect
By Peyton Hall, FAIA 'Advisory Group Member, AIA Historic Resources Committee
As guest editor for the second Preservation Architect of 2012, I exercise the prerogative of dedicating the June issue of Preservation Architect to James J. Malanaphy III, AIA, NCARB, who practices architecture, planning, and historic preservation, based in St. Paul, Minnesota. James sought the assistance of Craig Rafferty, FAIA, of Rafferty Rafferty Tollefson Lindeke Architects (also based in St. Paul, Minnesota) and an Advisory Group member for the AIA Interfaith Forum on Religion, Art and Architecture (IFRAA) to identify the notable projects, architects, and issues represented in this issue ofPreservation Architect. There is so much work in this area of practice; future issues are sure to return to this important common ground that we share - heritage and religion. Read more.
Balance for Historic Religious Structures
By Craig Rafferty, FAIA' 2011 Chair AIA Interfaith Forum on Religion, Art and Architecture
There are many areas of overlap between the AIA's Historic Resources Knowledge Community and the AIA's Interfaith Forum on Religion Art and Architecture (IFRAA) Knowledge Community. One of the most significant is their common ground for preserving and restoring historic churches and sharing information on successful projects. Such projects are often worthy of recognition within the Faith and Form / IFRAA International Awards program conducted each year in search of the most meaningful and exemplary religious architecture projects. This award program, approaching 70 years under 3 different names, has recognized over 80 restorations and major renovation projects in the past 45 years in which records are available. Read more.
