These gentlemen hail from the 19th century and their work is essentially pre-modernist, as well as being acknowledged to be utterly individualistic, I don’t think we can include any of them in a discussion on contemporary directions in church architecture, without slipping back into revivalism.

Surely, the quintessential hallmark of modern man?

Praxiteles is inclined to think that a plurality of approaches is possible and among them revivalism is a valid option. Indeed, one of the few canonical principles guiding church architecture in the Latin Church is that no style is canonised and hence all styles, with certain qualifications, are theoretically available for use in the construction of Latin Rite churches.
