PROJECTS

CHRIST CATHEDRAL

With Johnson Fain

 

GARDEN GROVE, CALIFORNIA

 

Project Architect for the construction administration phase of the transformation of Phillip Johnson’s famous Crystal Cathedral into Christ Cathedral for the Diocese of Orange.

 

A reconfiguration of the worship hall for Catholic services, with precise steel and stone design features, sophisticated mechanical and lighting systems, and technically complex structural upgrades to accomodate the design.

 

Worked hand-in-hand with the contractor and their subcontractors to solve constructability issues over 18months of construction. Reviewed change orders and other financial issues with the owners representative, and improved communication and trust amongst all involved.
