CD 11 – Erik Bootsma On Traditional Architecture

My guest is Erik Bootsma a classical architect who specializes in ecclesiastical architecture. Erik was trained at the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture, which focuses on traditional forms of architecture. He and I discuss the role and modern degradation of architecture, Russell Kirk on modern architecture, the church wreckovations of the 1960s, and the attempts to return to traditional understandings of sacred space. Plus, we take a look at Prince Charles’s book A Vision of Britain and the Prince’s model city of Poundbury. It’s a packed discussion, and I think you’ll enjoy it.
