Chapel in Sedona

Back in the go-go 1990s I was fortunate enough to visit Sedona, Arizona. I went to the Chapel of the Holy Cross that was designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright, a woman by the name of Marguerite Brunswig Staude. My memory of it is fond. It has a simple but striking design. The American Institute of Architects gave the Chapel its Award of Honor in 1957. In the sculptor's words, “Though Catholic in faith, as a work of art the Chapel has a universal appeal. Its doors will ever be open to one and all, regardless of creed, that God may come to life in the souls of all men and be a living reality.”

On another architectural point, some guy has built a Frank Lloyd Wright designed house in Greystones, Ireland.
