I wonder when this was built. We still think "modern," but I wonder if it was "50s modern or later." I think I would tear it down and start over!
What do I do if I want to emvidden?
@ Tapirgal - You are probably right...I was thinking 60s.
@ Safe Leif - Find a misery synod church and pray!
Looks like a good perch for the raptor you showed several posts back.
WOW! Super Capture, wonderful -looking structure, great POV and clarity, good photo!
I embiggened it cuz you said I could. Personally I like this design. I'm not really sure why, but I do. Maybe because I'm such a sucker for the 50's and 60's era.
I love the angle you took it at and, of course, the colors.
Point me to heaven, Lord. MB
Very interesting architecture, it even looks a bit eastern?!?!God bless you!Cezar
I like the elegant shape and the idea of the brick screen. A very nice church!
The shape of the roof would be great in an area that gets heavy snow, I think. Ehe white stuff would slide right off.
Yup, mid-century modern alright! Looks better than many I've seen though. And I'm still iffy whether I like them or not.
@ Small City Scenes - I think that's the point of this! But, which way is heaven, seeings as how there's no "up." It's very confusing.
@ Lee - Heh, heh. At first I thought you said it would be a good perch for the "rapture." :-))
That is an interesting roof line. I'll bet there are some skateboarders that look at it with yearning. Pretty picture!
Very unique! Interesting design. Happy Halloween from the UP. Rain or snow, we will have about 52 goblins...and more.
The wall....Is it copper or bricks?
I think the photo is good but that era... hhmmmppphhh another story. The architecture was full of harsh lines and jagged edges. I was like they were trying to make a statement for the sake of it... what happened to blending in with the environment?
@ Sean - I lived during those times, and remember the architectural thinking utilized the theology of western churches - that the church was a ship carrying the faithful to heaven (or something like that; thus the naval connections and attributes: Churches were often constructed as marine vessels, albeit sometimes upside down and that's why the people's area is called a nave!This is a perfect example of that kind of architecture.
@ Nopham - It is a brick material ...
Hi Jacob. There's a blogger outage all over Europe, I'm not sure I'll make it to all your blogs today either. Thank you, I did sleep well! I really, really like this architecture. As modern churches go, it's lovely!
Interesting lines for sure, but I agree with the comment about tearing it down and starting over. However, I do love your composition!
@ Ciel - Not to worry...I've got too many blogs and I don't expect people to visit them all...Glad you slept well...hope you are having a great day.We're soon gonna have a bunch of little goblins begging for candy! I could do what Letterman did last night - give 'em dryer lint! :-)
Very eye-catching! It somehow makes me think of the houses in Sulawesi, Indonesia.
That's a sweeping view of a church and I'll bet it was built in the 70's, maybe 80's.
BEautiful and lovely shot !! Simply awesome !!
trop moderne pour moi mais il en faut pour tous les gouts,j ai mise un traducteur sur tout mes blogs au faite ;O)too modern for me but it must suit all tastes, I've put a translator on all my blogs made; O)
@ Nefertiti - Merci beaucoup re: translators!
Very nice lines.
Nice one, how the cross is in same angle of the roof.My Bangkok Through My Eyes!You Got A Posty
My father was on the building committee when this church was built, early 1960s. The shape is meant to symbolize praying hands. Inside, the curved ceiling as well as the benches are all beautiful, warm wood. I realize the outside might look"dated" - though styles come and go, as you all probably know. Maybe someone can post a picture of the inside. It inspires a feeling of reverence, peace and awe.
