Areas of Expertise
A member of the Notre Dame faculty since 1990, Stroik teaches, studies and designs out of a deep commitment to the principles of classical architecture and urbanism. His portfolio includes numerous civic, residential and collegiate buildings, but his clear preference, even passion, seems to be for church design. His designs include that of the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in LaCrosse, widely regarded as the first great Catholic church in the classical style to be built for at least half a century, “Just as to do Catholic theology means to learn from the past, so to design Catholic architecture is to be inspired and even quote from the tradition and the time-tested expressions of church architecture.” To advance this conviction, Stroik serves a director of the Institute for Sacred Architecture, a non-profit organization of architects, clergy, educators and lay people interested in contemporary church architecture. He also edits the insititute’s “Sacred Architecture Journal.”
