Symbols of Faith

Completed in 1965, First Baptist Church was designed by Harry Weese, a nationally prominent architect.  Among his many other notable projects, Weese also designed the Time-Life Building in Chicago, IL; the Mercantile Bank in Kansas City, MO; and the Healey Library at the University of Massachusetts--Boston.

The FBC sanctuary is the principal interior space of the building.  It is a windowless room, made up of simple elements that combine to create a space that is at the same time dramatic and serene.  Each element is a simple object--a brick wall, a beam, an opening, a skylight--but they are all exaggerated slightly in size, proportion, or height.  This unique church is included in the Columbus Architectural Tour which explains a number of religious symbols Weese incorporated in his design.  This link to "Symbols of Faith" also explains those religious symbols.
