Description 

Represents a strong reaction to the traditional rectangular meeting house-with-steeple approach that had dominated Protestant religious architecture for more than half a century. The church's design stresses the interplay of geometric forms, and is essentially a hemisphere set on a cube. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, February 20, 1972
