JOHNSON FAIN is pleased to announce the commencement of construction to transform the iconic Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California to CHRIST CATHEDRAL for the ROMAN CATHOLIC DIOCESE OF ORANGE. Originally designed by Philip Johnson and John Burgee for Reverend Robert Schuller, the building will undergo extensive improvements to the all-glass 2,000 seat interior. The new design addresses the requirements of the Catholic liturgy as well as increased sunlight and acoustic control and environmental comfort. Landscape design is by RCHS. Snyder Langston is the building contractor. The Diocese intends to dedicate Christ Cathedral in 2019.
