Architecture and liturgy: design autonomy and standards

*  *  *

Publié le mardi 29 juillet 2014 par João Fernandes

Résumé

The second International Seminar offers a new stage of critical reflection on the relationship between the liturgical and ecclesiastical guidelines offered by the Second Vatican Council and church architecture, and propose a reflection on what the terms of dialogue and the interdependence between architecture and liturgy are. The dogmatic constitution Sacrosanctum Concilium is a fundamentally important document in the Church's struggle for renewal with immediate and obvious repercussions on the architectural questions concerning the construction and organization of the celebratory space. Therefore, this Seminar is intended as an occasion to compare and propose various ways of seeing and experiencing the relationship between autonomy and the standard applied to the architectural design, in reference to conciliar liturgical instances.

Argument

The second International Seminar offers a new stage of critical reflection on the relationship between the liturgical and ecclesiastical guidelines offered by the Second Vatican Council and church architecture, and propose a reflection on what the terms of dialogue and the interdependence between architecture and liturgy are. The dogmatic constitution Sacrosanctum Concilium is a fundamentally important document in the Church's struggle for renewal with immediate and obvious repercussions on the architectural questions concerning the construction and organization of the celebratory space. Therefore, this Seminar is intended as an occasion to compare and propose various ways of seeing and experiencing the relationship between autonomy and the standard applied to the architectural design, in reference to conciliar liturgical instances.

Main themes

The works of the International Seminar will be organized around the following subject areas, which the reports presented in response to the call for papers should explicitly address.

1 – Interdependence/Independence in the relationship between liturgy and architecture

2 – Autonomy and standards from the commissioner's point of view

3 – Permanence and impermanence

4 – Autonomy and standards in architecture

Scholars and researchers of liturgy, architectural history, history of Christianity, and religious disciplines, architectural and urban design, theological, philosophical disciplines and humanities related to architectural studies and catholic liturgy, are invited to present contributions to the Seminar.

Preference will be given to those contributions that consider the issues proposed in light of a variety of sources and accounts, favouring specific post-conciliar case studies that present documented and established structures.

Preference will be given to those papers that present the results of innovative research concerning documented case studies (dissertations, doctoral theses, targeted researches, designs of national or EU interest, European competitive tenders), with a disciplinary or multidisciplinary angle.

The reports accepted at the convention and those reserved for publication will be announced by the 31st of October 2014.
