I was doing some research on Apse’s when i found this…http://www.usml.edu/liturgicalinstitute/projects/2010/church%20for%202010.htm it shows some computer generated images of a church for 2010…the overall idea is i think is good & well thought out but maybe a missing some ceiling detail!
This church design provides a solution for a very particular set of circumstances not found in every church program. As such, the â€œChurch for 2010â€ is not meant to be seen as a â€œbestâ€ or â€œmodelâ€ liturgical arrangement, nor are the arrangements presented here advocated for all situations. An individual congregation may well want to make different choices concerning the arrangement of the liturgical furnishings and seating according the norms set by the ordinary of their diocese and the revised General Instruction of the Roman Missal.
The architects of this particular church design were given a complex and difficult program, one which mirrors requests often made by design and building committees. The architects were asked to design a church which provided: seating for 1000 people with maximum proximity to the altar, a full immersion baptistery, devotional and penitential chapels, and a Blessed Sacrament chapel separated from the main body of the church. At the same time, the architects were instructed to provide a worthy and dignified building which spoke of continuity with Catholic tradition, included a rich iconographic program making the liturgical realities of the cosmic liturgy present to those in the building, gave a clear prominence to the altar, and which provided a truly fitting and prayerful place of repose for the Blessed Sacrament.
