SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral Facade
Cioffi, Paul L., 1928-2004
The Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul, Indianapolis, Indiana, U.S.A., was designed and built by architect William Whetton Renwick of New York in 1906-07. However, its facade was never completed until 1936 when Bishop Joseph E. Ritter engaged Indianapolis architect August C. Bohlen to finish the church's exterior. Bohlen respected Renwick's neoclassical design by facing the building with 2,500 tons of Indiana limestone carved into four 56-foot Corinthian columns, each measuring five and one-half feet in diameter. The columns support a cornice and pediment. The facade also incorporates a flight a steps that spans the width of the row of columns. ca. November 1989
