Charles Haertling church addition
It was intended to be the beginning of a much larger project, but I assume was considered

The highly photogenic Calvary Temple on University Blvd.
A remarkable Usonian building designed by Ralph Peterson in 1958.
Usonian architecture is the style Frank Lloyd Wright popularized in the 1930s-50s. This church may be the largest example of Usonian architecture in the state.
The roof of this smaller companion building on the same site is one of Denver’s few remaining examples of the use of the hyperbolic parabaloid.

Once in again in Boulder… the leaded glass in the windows of the First Christian Church on the turnpike.
The Usonian church was designed in 1960 by Thomas Nixon and Lincoln Jones and is currently in danger of being scraped.
