The Cathedral of St. John the Divine was designed in 1888 to be the largest Anglican Cathedral in the world. Its original Romanesque Revival style was later hybridized to include Gothic elements. Due to lack of funding and the interruption of the two World Wars, the cathedral was never finished. In 1985, John Barton was hired as the Architect-in-Residence for the cathedral. During his tenure, his responsibilities included a wide range of projects.  The ongoing construction of the two front towers and the north transept were some of his main focuses.
