Today, December 16, we celebrate the birthday of Ralph Adams Cram! A most influential architect in the revival of neo-Gothic style and design, Cram is responsible for the Cathedral’s distinct Gothic style. The “majestic dimensions, soaring verticality and structural clarity” present in the Cathedral are all thanks to Cram’s creativity and imagination. The next time you visit our Nave, take note of the unhidden load-bearing structures and the harmonious geometric proportions. To learn more about Cram’s process and the impossible story of the Cathedral’s construction, check out Senior Cathedral Guide Thomas Fedorek’s article on our blog at stjohndivine.org/news
