This program lets students explore the relationship between building form and function by focusing on three Cleveland-area historic houses of worship: St. Theodosius, an Orthodox Church; Temple Tifereth Israel, a synagogue; and the Kirtland Temple, a 19th-century Community of Christ (Latter Day Saints) Church. Through extensive interactivity students are introduced to architectural history and to the use of geometry and mathematics in order to understand how these buildings compare in their design. An accompanying Teacher Information Packet concentrates on architectural functional morphology, diversity, neighborhood characteristics, and data sources.
Co-developed by the Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland State University's Center for Sacred Landmarks, the American Institute of Architects (Cleveland Chapter), and the Lake County ESC.
