Last Call Of A Lame Duck

By ROY M. POOLEY, JR.
President, Florida Association of Architects


It is inconceivable that two years have passed since
you honored me with the presidency of our great organi-
zation. At the same time it is hard to remember when I
have not held the position. Most likely it will not be
easy to release the reins, but I promise to make a good
effort to join Bob Levison in the rocking chair brigade
and to speak only when spoken to. You have now en-
trusted your leadership to extremely capable hands and I
feel I can rock peacefully, and perhaps look wise.
Like every other president of FAA, I was seized of
many ambitions for my administration and am most
grateful that a substantial number of these have been,
or are in the process of being realized.
Oddly enough, I find myself in the position of now
urging your new administration to initiate the project
which I was most determined to see executed two years
ago. We simply found there were more immediate mat-
ters requiring attention.
Clint Gamble has pointed out that each administra-
tion has the obligation to carry out and complete the
work of the previous administration and the opportunity
to initiate new projects which generally will be com-
pleted by subsequent administrations. Through this pro-
cess, our beloved FAA has gained strength and increased
it stature through the years.
As I review the .highlights of two years efforts, I con-
clude our most important accomplishment has been the
re-staffing of our offices and the reorganization of our
structure. This will prove to be true, I think, only if we
have indeed constructed a more powerful and efficient
tool for the profession. A proper judgment will be rend-
ered in good time. I share the pride of all your officers,
board members and committees in the creation of our
new Architectural Education and Research Foundation;
in the eminently successful first Annual Florida Crafts-
manship Program; in the reorganized convention format;
in the new vigor developing in "The Florida Architect;"
in the fulfillment of a long cherished dream of an ap-
propriate building for the College of Architecture and
Fine Arts at the University of Florida; in the manner in
which Florida Architects are represented at the Institute
and the manner in which the Institute is represented by
Florida Architects; in the high percentage of fine Archi-
tecture created within our state and in the determination
of Florida Architects that this percentage shall constantly
increase. I am especially proud of the privilege accorded
me during these past years to come to know my colleagues
throughout the state and to work shoulder to shoulder
with so many fine men in our profession.
We have worked diligently, and I believe effectively,
toward numerous goals. We face challenges in many
fields. Of these quite probably none is more important


to our society than that presented by the massive resi-
dential market. Because it is in the home that every man
has his most intimate relationship with architecture, there
is no more vital battleground for the cause of good Archi-
tecture. The response to our recent questionnaire encour-
ages me to anticipate a fruitful conference of Architects
on this subject, perhaps in the early Spring.
It is essential to our society that we find the means
for orderly growth and the creation of beauty within our
man-made environment. In a world whose technology
creates satelite-borne cameras capable of reading news-
print from a distance of 100 miles, it is inconceivable
that a highway and its bridges must be merely efficient
and strong; that a sewage treatment plant must be merely
sanitary; that a manufacturing plant must be merely
utilitarian or that a subdivision of homes must be merely
profitable. It is equally inconceivable that orderly, effi-
cient and safe building development should be governed
by zoning ordinances, regulations and building codes de-
void of the experienced guidance of Florida's design pro-
fessionals.
Consequently, the project I was determined to see
initiated two years ago and now urge that a new admin-
istration undertake is the creation of a recommended
building code for the State of Florida.
In our ordinary experience with the writing of building
codes, the first reaction to this proposal is necessarily
that it is an impossible task. This is true because, in our
experience, it has always been necessary to confront the
political realities of life in addition to the technical pro-
blems involved.
I propose that we attack the technical problems with-
out particular reference to the political mechanics of
adoption. In short, I think it is high time we professional
designers assume the leadership in tangibly expressing to
the public what we believe to be a reasonable, proper and
efficient code of good practice in building construction.
When such a code has been written and an appro-
priate commission created for its constant review and
promotion, there is ho question in my mind that it will
rapidly gain acceptance.
Having lunch the other day with one of Florida's fore-
most building officials, I commented that failure of the
City of Jacksonville to transcribe into its building code
the obvious lessons learned from the Hotel Roosevelt
fire was very nearly a case of criminal negligence. He re-
sponded that surrounding Duval County with no building
code at all was an even greater crime against society. I
was compelled to agree! If Duval, one of Florida's largest
counties, has yet to adopt a building code, the need for
action is desperate indeed.
It follows then that our obligation is painfully obvious.
Thus, this last call of a lame duck.

The Faith Our Forms Express

By E. R. SOVIK, AIA


A condensation of an address to the
Annual National Joint Conference on
Church Architecture sponsored by the
Church Architectural Guild of Ameri-
ca and the Department of Church
Building and Architecture of the Na-
tional Council of the Churches of
Christ in the U. S. A., Dallas, Texas,
April 1964.


There is a pretty substantial litera-
ture in the field of present-day church
building. It is substantial in quantity,
and substantial also because a number
of very thoughtful and skillful men
have been concerned with the field.
They have provided us with some very
stimulating knowledge and opinions
about the faith and the forms that
express it.

The Symbolists
These spokesmen for form and faith
fall, it seems to me, into two groups.
One group might be called the Sym-
bolists. For they say, "This building
which we build; is it not the symbol
of the Christian community which it
shelters, the symbol of a certain sort
of encounter between God and men,
the symbol-of a particular understand-
ing of God, and a particular under-
standing of man, the symbol of the
mutual confession of faith which
gathers this society together?" If we
are to build good symbols we must
examine the nature of the community,
we must examine the nature of the
encounter, we must examine the na-
ture of the faith. Only then can we
find forms which are adequate images
and symbols. This is their point of
departure.
Theological study in which matters
of faith are described in propositions
and paragraphs is one means of pre-
paring oneself for the making of sym-
bols. Then, having absorbed this
doctrine and dogma, one may proceed
to the interpretation of theology in
terms of space, light, color, texture,
and the other elements of architec-
ture. This is a rewarding and im-
mensely valuable enterprise. Those of
you who have read Rudolf Schwarz's
book, The Church Incarnate, will re-
DECEMBER, 1964


member how he describes the congre-
gation as a community of chalices into
which God enters. This is one of his
theological images. Or, you will re-
member how he thinks of the congre-
gation as a pilgrim procession moving
toward the vision of the absolute, or
the consummation of time. Or you
may, even if you have not read the
book, remember the great, white cast
wall in his church at Aachen in its
brilliant light, with the congregation
facing it, and the altar between the
wall and the people . the meeting
place of the faithful people, and the
absolute and pure God.
Another example of this theological
imagery is presented by the so-called
central plan, or the many schemes
which approach it, by partially sur-
rounding the Lord's Table with the
congregation. The implication is that
if the church is the household of God,
the proper image of the church is the
family gathered around the table.
The space should, therefore, not be
long and narrow, nor should it be
separated into nave and chancel. It
should instead be broad and short, or
perhaps circular, and it should be a
single space.
There are, as all of you know who
have been facing this issue of the
church as a symbol of faith, a great
many theological propositions with
which the architect does or can not
concern himself; but it is an un-
ending marvel to me that the more I
work and study, the more important
the relationship between theology and
architecture becomes.

The Functionalists
But this is not the whole story at
all. If we look at Scripture we are
necessarily impressed by the fact that
this source book for our knowledge of
God is not a systematic theological
treatise. As theology it is ambiguous
and incomplete, and full of paradoxes.
Theological propositions are rare in
the Bible; we must conclude that God
has not chosen to reveal Himself in
the form of systematic theology. It is
quite true to say that God reveals
Himself instead through the history


of His actions as they are recorded in
the Scriptures; His relationship to the
covenant people, His dealings with
individuals, His action in the incarna-
tion, life, death and resurrection of
His Son, and His action in the church.
So our knowledge of God and the
establishment of a relationship with
Him involves not simply systematic
thought but also a consideration of
God's activity and the activities of
men, which are a response to God's
action. And it is out of this consci-
ousness that the second school of
church builders has been writing and
speaking. If we call the first group
the Symbolists, we might call the se-
cond group the Functionalists. Their
approach to the form of the church
building is derived from a study of
the action that takes place within and
about the church; the events that as a
whole we call liturgy. This group has
been vastly stimulating also. They
have taught us a great deal about the
events the church building is meant
to shelter and the way these events
ought to influence its form.
Although each of us may disagree
with the Anglican, or Roman, or Bap-
tist, or Calvinist view of worship,
none of us who has been studying the
liturgical scholars and the renewal of
the liturgy now current in the church
can fail to agree that if we are to build
really good churches, we must ex-
amine in the most thoughtful way the
meaning and forms of the worship we
aim to shelter. This sort of examina-
tion has been one key to the virtue
found in many of the really valid new
churches, especially the Roman Catho-
lic ones.
When these Functionalists speak
about church design they speak a
fairly lucid language: "Make the
space fit the action contained in the
space." If the action of worship finally
centers at the altar, then reasonably
the altar should be in the center, not
half a block down against a remote
wall (this might be Peter Hammond's
view). Or (as J. G. Davies might be
paraphrased) if the other sacrament,
the baptismal event, is a dominical
(Continued on Page 8)






Faith ...
(Continued from Page 7)
imperative belonging to the commun-
ity like the Lord's Supper, and like
it possessed of a unique integrity, then
be reasonable; give this sacrament its
appropriate functional space, and do
not push the font into an insignif-
icant corner. And if (as James F.
Whyte has said) the church is "a
place for the preaching of the word,"
then the Functional must recognize
that certain kinds of spaces are appro-
priate for the ministry of the Word.
(I should like parenthetically to rec-
ommend to those who do not know
the writings of these three men on
these subjects, that you ought not to
design any church building without
reading them.)
However we agree or disagree with
these men, and however they may dis-
agree with each other, they are all sure
of one thing: that a church is a place
where certain things happen; where
God reveals Himself in action. And
they want the building to be appro-
priate to the event.

Critical Reflections
I do not see how anybody can dis-
agree with either the Symbolists or
the Functionalists in their essential
attitudes. But, as I reflect on these
matters, I am not quite content. We
can study the nature of the church
and come to some defensible conclu-
sions about the church building as a
symbol; we can examine the liturgy
and find shapes which are at least
comfortably appropriate to it. And
these things should help us to build
good churches. But, they are not suf-
ficient to assure us of good churches,
because they do not sufficiently deal
with the art of architecture, and a
good church must, at the very least,
be good architecture.

Critique of Functionalists
I should like to examine this matter
a little more closely, first by saying
something about the Functionalists'
views. It is, I think, quite clear that
a building that functions well is not
necessarily good architecture. Func-
tion is a technical issue, not an esthe-
tic one. One can defend the state-
ment, as Philip Johnson has, that no
great architecture in all history has
been functional. And, even if one
doesn't want to say this, he must ad-
mit that the greatness of the great


buildings in history does not derive
out of the efficiency with which they
serve their purposes as physical shel-
ter. If function were the essential
value, we might as well complete the
destruction of the Parthenon, because
it has no further function (techni-
cally speaking) at all.

Critique of Symbolists
The concern of the Symbolist, that
a church building should be a faith-
ful image of theology, is insufficient
for a somewhat more complex reason.
The Symbolists deal with theology
and the theologians deal with ideas
which are expressed in words. Theol-
ogy is thought expressed in prose, a
step-by-step system of logic, of syllog-
isms, analogies; a sort of sequence of
ideas which Suzanne Langer, the phil-
osopher, has called "Discursive sym-
bols."
Sometimes discursive symbols can
be translated into visual forms with
fair success, and these visual forms
can be translated back into words.
Sometimes people want to "read" a
church building this way: it is cross-
shaped which stands for a Christian
persuasion; there is a groined vault


which stands for folded hands, which
stand for prayer; there is indirect
lighting which stands for mystery;
there is a stained glass window in
which each apostle can be named
because he has his own identifying
trademark, if one can remember the
trademark, and so on. None of these
things is necessarily good or bad. But
it doesn't take an artist to make a
cross-shaped building, a groined vault,
indirect lighting, or the symbols of
the apostles, and they do not in them-
selves make good or bad architecture.

The Symbols of Art

Art involves symbols of another
sort. They are symbols which we sense,
which we understand intuitively,
which we feel, which we apprehend
without needing to translate, and pos-
sibly can not translate into prose.
They are symbols which move us, af-

The Business Of The 1964 Convention


The 566 registrants attending the
50th Annual Convention witnessed
new innovations in convention man-
agement. Many in attendance thought
that the Golden Convention was the-
most thorouglJy organized meeting
ever held by FAA, one that will be
hard to beat.
According to William T. Arnett,
newly elected president of FAA the
only disappointment of the entire
convention was the cancelled appear-
ance of the keynote speaker Mr. Har-
old Gores, President of the Educa-
tional Facilities Laboratory who was
fog-bound in New York City.
In his summation of the profes-
sional program, John Cameron, Chief
of the School Housing Section of the
U. S. Department of Health, Educa-
tion & Welfare cited, as one re-oc-
curing theme, the importance of rec-
ognizing the inter-dependency of
architects and educators who must as
a team work together to solve the
complex problems of the age. Con-
tinuously throughout the talks and
symposiums, the inter-relationships
between all the building industry, be-
tween architects, producers, contract-
ors, craftsmen as well as clients and
others were emphasized as necessities
of what Producer's Council President
Charles S. Stock dubbed, "our systems
age" in his address to the convention.
B. Frank Brown, principal of Mel-
bourne High School, asserted that
"the effect of the break-through in
missileology has been to make educa-
tion all the rage and experimentation
a viable notion in a traditionally con-
ventional enterprise."
He called for "sweeping changes,"
challenging the architects to act while
there is "a national disposition favor-
able to change."
The president-designate of the
American Institute of Architects chal-
lenged members of his profession to
help build a "better environment for
buildings and the people who use
them." Ketchum stated, "it is the
responsibility of our profession to help
bring forth a generation of concerned
Americans, a generation which will
fight for orderliness and beauty, a
DECEMBER, 1964


generation which will not destroy our
priceless heritage of the past for a
"quick buck."
Both of the convention's FAA
business sessions produced significant
results. One of the first orders of busi-
ness was the unanimous approval in
the complete revisions of the Associ-
ation's Bylaws. The important changes
were the:
1. elimination of the three vice-pre-
sidencies.
2. addition of the position Presi-
dent-Designate (Vice President)
3. establishment of five commis-
sions with a commissioner in charge
of each.
At the last business session the dele-
gates voted to establish a foundation
named the Florida Association of
Architects Foundation, Inc. The
primary purpose of this foundation
shall be to solicit, receive and expend
gifts, grants and legacies, to provide
Architectural Scholarships, establish
professorships, and assist architectural
educational and research projects. Full
information on this matter will be
presented in an early 1965 issue of
The Florida Architect.
The last business session was also
the scene for a very concise report
from members of the State Board of
Architecture and its counsel. FAA
members were brought up to date rela-
tive to the proposed legislation by
the Florida Home Builders Associa-
tion to amend the present Architects
Registration Act regarding residential
design. A complete legislative report
will be published early next year rela-
tive to proposed action by FAA.
Of the many resolutions which
were passed by the Convention and
printed herewith, the first, which fol-
lows, requests the State Legislature to
establish a study committee in order
to bring about better coordination of
the activities of the various segments
of the construction industry.


State Legislature Requested to Study
Construction Industry
WHEREAS, The Construction In-
dustry annually represents a two bil-
lion dollar segment of The Florida
Economy, establishing it with Agri-
Business and Tourism as one of the
state's largest and most important
economic influences; and
WHEREAS, Many other businesses
and professions are directly affected,
economically and socially, by the im-
pact of construction on the everyday
life of Florida's citizens and visitors;
and
WHEREAS, The physical safety, the
human environment and the real es-
tate investment security of all resi-
dents of the state, are directly affected
by the quality of the Construction
Industry's product; and
WHEREAS, The explosive growth
of the state continually imposes a
threat to the orderly growth and
healthful, physical and economic de-
velopment of the state, which de-
velopment is inextricably dependent
upon a well organized and coordin-
ated Construction Industry composed
of such allied groups as mortgage
bankers, insurance underwriters, de-
sign professions, general contractors,
specialty contractors, heavy construc-
tion contractors, materials manufact-
urers and distributors, home builders,
building and zoning officials, sanita-
tion and health regulatory agencies,
and others similarly necessary to an
organized effort; and
WHEREAS, Since the earliest times
in the state's history, the promotion
and development of agriculture and
its allied businesses, as well as the
orderly development of tourism into
an important economic factor has
evolved from continuing study and at-
tention of the Florida Legislature,
now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, By the Florida Associ-

For centuries mahogany has been to the world of
wood what leather has been to men's clothing. Both
materials have built lasting reputations for beauty,
performance, and long life. Little wonder that both
leather and mahogany are imitated. Mahogany by
so-called Philippine Mahogany, which is not a Genuine
Mahogany but may be one of 14 different species of
wood.
Just as a top tailor wouldn't think of using an inferior
cloth for a fine suit, today's architects should insist
on Genuine Mahogany rather than substitutes. One
way to be sure is always buy from Weis-Fricker,
world's largest producers of Genuine Mahogany.
Weis-Fricker imports and manufactures only Swietenia
Macrophylla from Central and South America. It's
yours quickly in any quantity at prices that will
please you-and at lengths up to 20 feet, widths to
24 inches, and thicknesses to 4 inches!


ha ltoluld At hmio
From Weis-Fricker you'll get the same magnificent
material that tests by the U. S. Forest Products
Laboratory and Cornell University show superior over
all other popular hardwoods in nearly all properties
for mortising, boring, planing, warping, shaping, and
turning. And you'll join some of America's top archi-
tects who chose Genuine Mahogany recently for the
interior of the luxurious Hotel Sheraton in San Juan,
the Professional Golf Association's (PGA) clubhouse in
Palm Beach, and the Library at the University of
Chicago.
For name of nearest dealer to you, write today. Free-
mahogany kit on request. Contains samples with
finishes in red, yellow, green, blue, brown, and violet,
plus mahogany fact book with mechanical stresses

ductions in a consecutive sequence as
"discursive symbols" do.
Now, the faith our forms express,
or ought to express, is not entirely
comprehended in theological data or
"discursive" symbols. Christianity does
not simply consist of acquiesence to,
or assertion of, a set or system of
theological propositions; it also in-
volves an attitude, a posture, a frame
of mind and heart, a passion and en-
thusiasm. And since this is so, it is
clear that the architecture of the
church must deal with attitudes, pas-
sions and the religious frame of mind
and heart.
Along with the concern for theol-
ogy and liturgy, and even more im-
portant, there must be in good church
architecture a concern for a sort of
symbolic language and real substance
which has no equivalent in prose and
cannot be interpreted in words. I
guess this is something which artists
of various types have been saying
quite regularly. There is the story
about Louis Armstrong, who said


when he was asked how one learns
to understand jazz, "If you don't dig
it when you hear it, there's nothing
I can say about it to help you." A
great choirmaster who lived in my
city is quoted as saying that one is
converted to music, one does not
learn it. I remember Jack Tworkov,
who is now head of the school of
painting at Yale, saying once at the
opening of a gallery show, that he
would not talk about his paintings
as they spoke for themselves, and
words did them no good.
Now this is, largely true. You can-
not understand music in the most re-
warding sense by reading the program
notes, and you cannot understand
good architecture by reading a gloss-
ary of symbols, or by reading the the-
ology out of which it is generated.
Good architecture is generated also
by passions, attitudes, visions, which
find expression in the "non-discur-
sive" symbol. It must also be under-
stood in terms of the "non-discursive"
symbol.
Because our faith asserts a consci-
ousness of a kind of life other than
that of doctrine and dogma, so our


architecture ought to assert the num-
inous, as well as the theological and
functional. But I also want to say,
perhaps in disagreement with people
like Rudolph Otto, who wrote first
about the numinous, that the sense
of mystery, the numinous, is not de-
pendent upon darkness, silence, im-
mense height or other devices. It is
present in a good church whether
bright or dark, long or broad, if it is
a good work of art.
Since church architecture must be
the expression of an attitude or a
frame of mind, this seems to me to
be valuable: "Have this mind in you,
which was also in Christ Jesus, who
counted not being on an equality with
God a thing to be grasped, but emp-
tied himself, taking on the form of
a servant."
If the Christian community as-
sumes the form of a servant in imita-
tion of Christ, what does it mean for
the architecture of their building?
Many buildings say, in effect, to
the people who use them, "I am
the ruler; when you approach me you

must be impressed by me, and I wish
you to behave in certain ways, and to
assume an attitude of awe and sub-
servience in my presence. My geome-
try and my space are independent of
you. They exist autonomously and rep-
resent an ideal order with which I
intend to dominate you." Such build.
ings often seem to be independent of
the service they are meant to perform.
They confront people rather than
meet them.
There is another sort of building
which makes a different sort of state-
ment. It says, in effect, "You who
approach and enter this building are
more important than I. I offer you
shelter in my structure, but I will not
impose my forms on you or make
myself the demanding object of your
attention .I will instead, accommodate
myself as graciously and attentively
as I can to the important things you
do. In this way I will be your serv-
ant."
We must devote ourselves to the
faithful expression of what is true,
not only to theological and liturgical
truth, but also to that quality of truth
which is felt rather than reasoned,
sensed rather than defined, which is
expressible only in the forms of art.
This devotion to truth must take the
place of the desire to impress or to
mystify or to manipulate.
I think it is because some of the
architects who have no membership
in the Christian congregations still
have this great passion for integrity
that they have been able to do some
of the best churches of our genera-
tion. They may not be theologically
sophisticated, and they may not be
liturgically oriented, but their im-
mense passion for the true and the
whole has given these artists the ca-
pacity to design convincing churches.
The faith our forms express is not
only doctrine, and is not compre-
hended by the activity of worship. It
is an attitude, a passion, a commit-
ment to the vision of what is whole
and holy. If the passion is fervent we
shall see the mystery appear in our
buildings; we shall find them to be
servants of the Lord and of men. We
shall find them monumental in the
best sense. And, to this degree, the
Kingdom of God, for which we pray,
will come among us.

An example of Abbate's work is a
slate hearth and stone fireplace in the
home of Dr. and Mrs. Andre S. Copi
of Fort Lauderdale. The stones are
in effect a beautiful and intricate wall,
emphasizing the design of the entire
residence. Architect William P.

Architectural


Survey

During December, all registered
architects in Florida will receive sur-
vey forms relative to the Survey of the
Architectural Profession. This project
is the culmination of the efforts of
the Chapter Affairs Committee which
is headed by Jefferson Powell of Palm
Beach.
As the committee stated, "There
is a distinct need to know the make-
up of the Florida Architects, their
economic contribution to the state
which in turn will provide the data
required to formulate the proper im-
age of our architects."
Appropriate instructions will ac-
company the forms which will be
completed by check marks and will
contain only ten questions.

The



Sanford W. Goin



Architectural



Scholarship


Architecture was both a cause and a pro-
fession to Sanford W. Goin, FAIA. As a
cause he preached it everywhere as the basis
for better living and sound development in
the state and region he loved. As a profes-
sion he practiced it with tolerance, with
wisdom, with integrity and with humility.
He was keenly aware that in the training
of young people lay the bright future of the
profession he served so well. So he worked
with them, counseled them, taught them by
giving freely of his interests, energies and
experience . The Sanford W. Goin Archi-
tectural Scholarship was established for the
purpose of continuing in some measure, the
opportunities for training he so constantly
offered. Your contribution to it can thus be
a tangible share toward realization of those
professional ideals for which Sanford W
Goin lived and worked.
The Florida Central Auxiliary has
undertaken, as a special project,
to raise funds for the Sanford W.
Goin Architectural Scholarship.
Contributions should be addressed
to Mrs. Archie G. Parish, President
of Women's Auxiliary, 145 Wild-
wood Lane, S. E., St. Petersburg 5,
Florida.
