The Symmetrical Church

I came across this interesting Modernist Church in Glenorchy. What caught my eye was the coloured glass completed in steel frame arrow design. I really like the 2 doors on either side as well, the coloured window and doors create perfect symmetry. The arrow patterns draw ones eye up towards the triangular pitched roof and back down into the main facade of the building. Modernist Churches are indeed an interesting style in themselves. Like commercial architecture during the 50s/60s, Churches took on new and often exciting styles as well.
