Johnson Fain is pleased to announce the completion of the design for the transformation of the iconic Crystal Cathedral to CHRIST CATHEDRAL in Garden Grove, California for the ROMAN CATHOLIC DIOCESE OF ORANGE. Originally designed by Philip Johnson for Reverend Robert Schuller, the building will now undergo extensive improvements to the all-glass 2,000 seat interior, transitioning this important architectural landmark into a Roman Catholic place of worship. The design will also address sunlight control, acoustics and environmental comfort. This historic opportunity restores and respects the original building while creating a unique sacramental space within the framework of the original classic modern structure. Landscape design will be completed by Rios Clementi Hale Studios. The Diocese’s goal is to dedicate the Cathedral by 2019.
