A brutalist sanctuary Nov. 12th


Tim Hossler

Lawrence Modern’s infatuation with 1960s brutalist architecture continues with our next event at the Immanuel Lutheran Church, a building most of us (non-Lutherans) drive by quite often. Brutalist architecture tends to elicit strong reactions, but love it or hate it you can’t ignore it. Rising from the ground like a stripped classical belfry, the Immanuel Lutheran Church reaches for the heavens with typical Lutheran clarity. The result is art and architecture that provides an inspired setting for worship. The Bible says, “The people must make a sacred Tent for me, so that I may live among them.” This is quite a tent. See you on November 12 for another stirring Lawrence Modern congregation.
