Architecture and Theology

St Peter in Chains copy.jpg

James Robertson has commenced doctoral research (supervised by Eamonn Canniffe) on the early architecture of Jack Coia (1898-1981) with particular reference to his churches. In this sketch of St. Peter in Chains, Ardrossan (1938) one can detect the influence of the Amsterdam School, as well as the almost expressionist work of the German architect Dominikus Bohm. Continuity in Architecture looks forward to James’s discoveries on Coia’s work and its relationship to the building programme of the Glasgow Archdiocese.

Information on the later work of the practice is available at C20 Society casework.
