Narrative:
Designed by Landry and Landry and completed in 1985, the Church of the Incarnation incorporates the best traditions of O'Neil Ford architecture with the prizewinning attention to detail of Jane and Duane Landry. Situated in the center of the campus just off the Braniff Mall in a grove of trees, this 500-seat campus church attracts many visitors and participants because of the beauty and serenity of the liturgical space, appointments, liturgy, and environment. Also included are lights by Isaac Maxwell, liturgical appointments by Lyle Novinski, and art work by University of Dallas faculty.
