Epiphany -- mass

View of church following construction. The black and white view from the rear emphasizes the solidity and massiveness of the stucture. It become virtually scaleless save the bricks. The white steel steeple is very light and subtle compared to the weight and blockiness of the building itself. Its so different in character and form, that it would be easy to assume it was part of another structure beyond.

Where the steeple meet the building's roof, it splits into three legs spanning over a skylight. The skylight admits light directly over the altar and its massive sculptural crucifix. The bottom of the steeple also holds the bell for the church.
