Finding Meaning in Sacred Architecture – Lecture by Val Brinkerhoff
Val Brinkerhoff is an associate professor of photography in BYU’s Visual Arts Department, and over the last decade has focused his studies on sacred architecture, particularly of temples. He’s authored or co-authored a number of books, the three most recent being about finding the meaning of symbolism in sacred architecture. Yesterday he gave a lecture on this subject at BYU as part of the Kennedy Center Lectures. A video of the lecture is embedded below (on the website), or can be found at the Kennedy Center website. It is about an hour long, and provides a fascinating look into the symbolism of temples, ancient and modern. Thanks Lee!
