Eero Saarinen designed North Christian Church, which was completed in 1964. It was the last building designed by the younger Saarinen. The sloping roof of this six-sided building blends with the landscaped earth-mound which surrounds it. This low line accentuates the slender 192-foot spire, topped with a gold-leaf cross, which gives its distinctive design. Dan Kiley landscaped the multi-acre site including the parking lot with parking rooms.
