An elaborate restoration of a 1915 cathedral, bold uses of color in commercial architecture, and the coatings technology behind polysiloxanes are among the topics discussed in the latest issue of Durability + Design Magazine, now available free online.

The cover story, “Resurrection of a Renaissance Revivalist,” by Jen Kramer, details the recent comprehensive artistic restoration of the Emmanuel Masqueray-designed St. Joseph Cathedral in Sioux Falls, SD, led by Conrad Schmitt Studios.

The interior painting and decorating restoration effort featured an array of techniques including glazing, gilding, stenciling and tromp l’oeil.
