What can I say, I’m a lover of materials. Like any architect, I’ve been known to touch buildings and get excited (ahem). When I walked by this church today, I was first struck by the brick facade- uncommon in many parts of LA where stucco and the Spanish Mission style dominate. Maybe it was just my frame of mind, but when I saw the familiar terracotta roof tiles, I smiled: this building proudly had a little bit of Boston and a little bit of LA all rolled into one.
