Provo Eleventh Ward

Note: This post is one in a series that focuses on LDS architecture that is not historic, but that departs from standard cookie-cutter plans to become unique and beautiful in a different way. To see all of these posts, click here.

Next in the "Modern Architecture" series is the Provo 11th Ward. The chapel also hosts the Rivergrove 1st Ward. It looks like it was built in the 1950s.


It's actually quite similar to a lot of chapels from that time period, except for the organ in the chapel.




The pipes, and the details built onto their base, add so much to this chapel. You'll also notice that the pale, pink color goes around the perimeter of the chapel ceiling.




To me, this shows how much even tiny details can make a difference.
