St. Stephen United Methodist Church: A Tour and Discussion with Philip Henderson, FAIA


Please join Docomomo US/North Texas for a tour of St. Stephen United Methodist Church, a landmark project by the noteworthy Texas architectural firm of Pratt, Box, and Henderson.

Opened in December of 1962, the first phase of the visionary master plan posed new answers to the age-old question- what should a church look like? This resulted in an architecture that is “a symbol for openness and the willingness to initiate creative solutions to present day challenges.”- St. Stephen UMC

Philip Henderson, FAIA, will be on hand to discuss this groundbreaking design in the context of its era and today.
