Carlton Hills Lutheran Church

Architect: Robert Des Lauriers (1960)

Address: Santee, CA

This project received an AIA award of merit in 1960. The concrete structure and stained glass cut outs are reminiscent of Le Corbusier's Notre Dame Du Haut. The thin-shell roof structure is a hyperbolic paraboloid.

 

The doors were locked and there was nobody around to ask, so I couldn't go inside.
