Baron Foster of Thames Bank aka Norman Foster is the baron of high tech modernist architects. Foster is famous for the glass and steel Hearst Tower in New York and pickle shaped “Gherkin” that distinguishes the modern London skyline. Quick off the mark after the Notre Dame fire, Foster enthused that the restoration of the cathedral was a “great opportunity.” His rapidly sketched out design calls for a needle like spire made of “crystal glass and stainless steel” with an… Read more

After the horrific terrorist bombing in Sri Lanka our modern, utilitarian world asks why such things happen. They happen because, below the surface of our political news cycle, below the surface of our celebrity culture, below the surface of our affluence, below the surface of our humanistic attempts to create our utopias another battle simmers. This is the battle between the forces of darkness and the forces of light. Put in simply, mythic terms, this is the battle between the… Read more
