Erica Robles-Anderson on Mediated Congregation - Architecting the Crystal Cathedral

Within the past thirty years the rise of a new style of worship, coined “megachurch,” has transformed the American religious landscape, by blending audio, visual, and communications technologies within postmodern architectures, megachurches radically re-imagine Christianity. In this talk Erica Robles-Anderson — Assistant Professor in the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University — reads megachurches as part of late 20th century shift towards conducting collective life in increasingly mobile, mediated, and distributed arrangements.
