  • So, I need some help with some research.  I am interested in community development and revitalization.  Anyone have some suggestions as far as books, journals, etc?

  • Thanks for sharing Gabriel. Great message! Hope all is well up North.

    I created a link in the comment below but isn’t working for some reason. You can catch the album I created under my profile.

  • Great idea Vance. Here is a link to an album I created, per your idea, of photos I have taken of the temple in my area. The Sacramento California Temple. Design Workshop was the Landscape Architect firm. Also, feel free to wander the grounds of any temples in your area or travels. Occasionally there are open houses where the public can tour the…[Read more]

  • Matthew,


  • I served in Poland from 99-01, and personally no one place made an impact on my design, but rather the entire European style. It was the first time I lived in a place that had the typical European streetscape of a business on the 1st floor and residences for the next 3 or 4 on top of the business. Something so simple, but growing up in MO you…[Read more]

  • I am not LDS, but would love to hear of any experiences that you may have had or places you saw on your missions that affected the way that you design or that inspired you. Also if you have pictures of the temples and the ground from around the world please add them to an album and post so that we enjoy them.

    Anyone hear about the temple to be built in Rome? It’s great to finally see a temple going into the Catholic stronghold. Any Ideas who is doing the Temple grounds? I would love a crack at it.

Growing up in utah made it and easy one to visit. because its at church headquarters it recieves a lot of visitors and thus a bigger buget. I also like nauvoo.

  • What are some of your favorite church sites? why?

    I agree with you. The grounds are always nice and impressive however (from pictures I have seen) it looks like they lack cultural flavor. I think the grounds should be unique to the region/country reflect the culture more, become a gaurdian of identity. Much like they do with the architecture. I hope to do some temple design as well. I…[Read more]

  • I would like to one day design the temple grounds for a new temple. I think that it would be an interesting challenge to make the grounds have the same effect on patrons as the interiors do. The grounds that I have seen certainly do justice to the buildings their complimenting but I would really like to see If I could take the grounds to the next…[Read more]
