Interviews with the Artists is our popular summer series hosted by Cody Anderson, talking with a wide range of popular and not so popular artists in their fields. Some of these interviews cover music, writing, design, computer animation, satire, novels, home-made music videos, orchestras, biblical historical fiction, and more.

In this episode we welcome Matt Horne, a great personal friend, pastor, husband, father, coffee roaster, architect, drawer, and photographer.

Cody and Matt sit down and chat about Matt’s architecture background, how that developed from a love of drawing and how it helped him and his family on the mission field in Uganda.

We also talk about how architecture in churches reflect the beliefs that we hold about God. How would a church building do that? Matt expounds, and really only scratches the surface of the history of architecture in church buildings, going all the way back to Pre-renaissance and the Gothic era, and then bringing it up until today.

What designs we see in those old buildings today compared to the “mega-church” style building today is vary different. This is due to the fact that the buildings shape and reflect the culture and beliefs about God in that culture. Listen in as we get a little deeper into the building around us and how design speaks to us.
