St. Alexis, Lafayette, IN
Saint Alexis is a large mission church of the Carpatho-Russian Archdiocese. In association with a local architect of record, Andrew designed them an all-wood church capable of holding 250 regular worshippers. The interior is structured with an oak timber frame and plastered in preparation for fresco. The exterior is trimmed with clapboards in nineteenth-century American style. It is a unique fusion of traditional Midwestern building techniques with the form and decorative details of a Byzantine church -- very likely how an Orthodox church would have looked had one been built in nineteenth-century Indiana.
