Summary
Churches and Chapels: A Design and Development Guide is a reference for structure approach to design, development, or alteration of a building. The book deals with designing or altering traditional Western congregational halls and places of worship through a harmonious rending of religious worship and social action. Part I of the book focuses on background, presenting general ideas and influences that made today's churches. Questions such as adapt or replace and concerns about design are addressed. This part also examines the role of today's clients and the possible types of churches and chapels that will prove desirable and satisfactory. Part II discusses the design process covering the need for a feasibility study and agreed design development. The feasibility study addresses retention of parts of the structure, size of the structure, costs, and consideration of other building designs. Design analysis involves evaluation of the architectural considerations that include Western congregational halls, design ideas, check-ups, and sketching. The details of the scheme design contain precise information that will serve as basis for the client to modify or accept and for the authorities to approve. Throughout this book, case studies that are relevant for each topic are also given. This guide is useful for administration of local, parochial, and district congregations. This book can likewise be appreciated by architects and structural engineers
