All architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space that contains, cuddles, exalts, or stimulates the persons in that place.~ Philip Johnson

- They are located in a state west of the Mississippi
- Each place is distinctively different yet, they are located in the same community, a few blocks away on the same street, making them nearly neighbors!
- I can hear your brain buzzing with activity trying to figure this out!
- I visited both of these places last week and thoroughly learning more about each and enjoyed the photography opportunities.
Edifice #1 – I am so grateful for the kind stranger who directed my husband and me to the 10th floor of a nearby building to capture this incredible shot!
Edifice #2 (below) – As I entered into this building I couldn’t help but wonder how many people every hour, every day, every month or year pass by this structure having no clue of the magnificence that lies inside the doors. All it takes is one peek to grab one’s attention.
Aren’t both visually and architecturally stunning? If you joined in on All Things Fulfilling last week, by reading the posting Finding a Good Fit and if you read my memoir Gift of a Lifetime: Finding Fulfilling Things in the Unexpected you’ll understand the reason why I enjoy seeing church buildings. It has to do with my family history!
Do return to All Things Fulfilling tomorrow. I will post a few more pictures of these two extraordinary places.
