The dramatic exemplar of mid-20th century modernist church architecture is defined by its broad copper roof that shelters the sanctuary and rises and narrows from the east entrance to the chancel at the west end (a contrast to the traditional east-west orientation of many churches). It won an American Institute of Architects award.
