Au fait with Philip

  • Comment

Next month sees the launch of a fund-raising campaign to build the first cathedral of the new millennium. Some £4 million has already been donated and construction will commence this summer. The Cathedral of Hope in Dallas, Texas, is for a predominantly gay and lesbian congregation, so it is no surprise to learn that the architect of the decon, windowless edifice is Philip Johnson, now 91. With his usual modesty he proclaims that it will be 'the most exciting sanctuary in Christendom - and the thing by which I will be memorialised'.
