Three competitive designs

October 5, 2018

Sorry for the crappy images; they aren’t mine. These are three competitive designs for a single commission: a Methodist Episcopal church at Newton Centre, Massachusetts. The architects were Rand & Taylor/Kendall & Stevens; Walker & Kimball; and H. J. Carlson. Notice that in each proposal, there is an assembly space adjacent to the auditorium—one at the side; two on axis at the rear. Not sure which (if any) of these might have been chosen, though technically none of the are purely A-A.*

*Actually, I think they built a design by Cram, Wentworth & Goodhue.
