Catalina American Baptist Church—Renovation and Nomination to the National Register of Historic Places


Project Location: Tucson, Arizona

Date of Performance: 2006-2009

Project Description: Renovation of historic 1961 sanctuary originally designed by Charles Cox. Provided assessment of the long-term viability of the thin-shell concrete roof. Provided context information, building survey and documentation of salient features for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. The mid-century Modern building was less than 50 years old and therefore required a determination of “exceptional significance” (which was granted) to obtain eligibility. Property was listed on the National Register in 2008. The renovation is scheduled to be published by the Getty Center's Conserving Modern Architecture Initiative in 2018.
