A beautiful church I found today, proof that good newly-built vernacular architecture is never too far even in these times:

It was designed by Donald Buttress, who previously took the task of repairing Westminster Abbey.The cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral of the Slovak Byzantine Rite in the development called "Cathedraltown," in Markham (north of Toronto), Ontario, Canada. It is the first church in North America to be consecrated by a Pope: John Paul II. Work began in 1984.

The only downside is the suburban development planned around it:

The development has little if anything to do with walkable, dense urbanism. the church seems to be the jewel of the entire complex, the rest is uninteresting. If only all of those houses, townhouses, and other buildings were all grouped together into dense blocks leaving only alleyways for streets organically around the church, then this would call so much more attention and feel as vibrant as any European town...:

I've known about this one for some time. Always been a tad hesitant about posting it as it has traditional features and modern features.

Church of the Transfiguration, Orleans - Massachusetts, completed 2003-20??

Wow a modern Romanesque Basilica! I don't think one has been built in such original style since 650AD.

Here's another project from that the website says will be completed in 2012(?). It's the Center for Environmental and Life Sciences at Montclair State University.





I like the red roof and its overhang.

Thompson Hall at Hopkins School




The Clay Centennial Center at Middlesex School





I love the telescope.
