Down the centuries, the church fostered the tradition of pioneering the most adventurous and innovative architecture ever contemplated, There was no guarantee that flying buttresses would work, or that Brunelleschi’s dome would stand up, and indeed there were numerous catastrophic collapses, but that didn’t stop the church from continuing to take enormous leaps of faith in creating the legacy of phenomenal buildings that came to symbolize medieval and renaissance Europe.

True, and precisely the reason why we must move beyond the “modernist” phasewhich has not produced much -at least in Ireland- of significance in terms of phenomenal buildings.

Stroik, as far as I am aware, is not the architect for the Oxford oratory chapel.
