The key phrase within it, which I can see at least three times is the title of this post, "renewed ancient vision."
Bishop Victoria Matthews is cited in as clear a statement as we have heard that the intention of the design group responsible for the new cathedral is a building which blends old and new:
"The Cathedral Project Group has repeatedly said that we do not want to build a replica but rather a mix of old and new. A renewed ancient vision that does reflect our past but also looks to our future.”
She said “This approach is also more realistic in the current financial climate. We are currently testing design budgets and as soon as we know how much we can spend to build an inspirational building that gives glory to God, we will be releasing that figure. It will be substantially less than $100M."
The other vital phrase is "inspirational building."
I am looking forward to seeing the designs which are hoped to be made public by the end of the year.
