The church of St. Aloysius in Jackson, NJ is a 1,100 seat Catholic Church. Although this church community has grown substantially over the last 20 years, it remains tightly knit. St. Aloysius felt the need to build a new church that allowed for inclusion and unity of all of its members, new and old. As a result, the hyperbolic roof covers 17,800 square feet of uninterrupted worship space.
My responsibilities included exterior wall and roof design and detailing; coordination of consultants for structural, hyperbolic roof and mechanical systems. Particular investigation and coordination of the roof geometry was of top priority. Construction documents were completed in March of 2007 and construction was completed in May of 2009.
