Overview

For nearly 18 centuries, two fundamental spatial plans dominated Christian architecture: the basilica and the central plan. In the 1880s, however, profound socio-economic and technological changes in the US contributed to the rejection of these traditions and the development of a radically new worship building, the auditorium church. This text focuses on this radical shift in evangelical Protestant architecture and links it to changes in worship style and religious mission.
