The conclusion notes that while many mid-twentieth-century American Catholics tried to predict the future of church architecture, their record is poor: they would not have imagined the re-emergence of neohistoricist church architecture, yet that movement now once again dominates American Catholic architecture. The conclusion suggests that it is nevertheless worth returning to examine the ecclesiology advanced through mid-century arguments for architectural futurism; suggestions for worship space were fundamentally theological and political suggestions, not "merely" about aesthetics.
