Architecture & Liturgy in the Modern Worship Space

Join our St. Bernard's virtual community as we discuss the classics and faith. Our next session will be led by Marta Botturi who will present on what happened to Art, Architecture, and Liturgy at the beginning of the 20th century. She will explore the enormous impact of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) on modern architects and designers and ultimately lead us to reflect on what is the meaning of Architecture? And why is Liturgy fundamental to understanding the worship space?

Marta Botturi

Marta Botturi earned her Master’s in Architecture degree at Polytechnic University of Milan (Italy), presenting a thesis on Architecture and Interior design of modern worship spaces. She is fascinated by the unique relationship between Art, Architecture, and Liturgy, and considers it fundamental for creating a meaningful worship space that establishes a dialogue with the modern era. She attended several international workshops and summer schools organized by the Catholic Conference of the Italian Bishops, benefiting from the always prolific dialogue between the Church and the Architects on sacred architecture. She has been a consultant and designer of three chapels for nursing homes of a private foundation in Milan, Italy. Her passion for art and design, distinctive of Italy, her native country, brought Marta to obtain the National Qualification of Licensed Tourist Guide. She uses an innovative way of presenting to all age groups of students the artistic and historical sites worldwide, celebrated as the most excellent examples of creativity, faith, and technical skills. After she moved to Niskayuna in 2018, she began to study how the profound change in Liturgy after the Second Vatican Council impacted the worship space design in the United States of America compared with European experiences.
