✞ St. Vartan Armenian Cathedral is the first cathedral of the Armenian Apostolic Church to be constructed in North America. The New York architectural firm Steinman, Cain & White with Edward Utudjian of Paris as a consultant designed the cathedral. The cathedral's architectural plan is patterned after the 4th-century church of St. Hripsime in Armenia and includes two unique features distinct to Armenian architecture -- the use of double-intersecting arches and a pyramidal dome soaring 120 feet above street level. St. Vartan's was consecrated on April 28, 1968. The cathedral is named in honor of St. Vartan the 5th-century martyr who fought to preserve Armenian Christianity.

Unusual for a Walker O. Cain building, to stay close to such a very old form language, yet there is his use of structured very modern looking blocks, between preromanesque and brutalism. Beating what Gottfried Boehm did in Neviges by far.
