Redeemer Lutheran Church, Education Building

Bruce Goff
1961
These photographs were taken more than a decade ago.




This addition to the church was designed specifically for children; thus it is bright and cheerful. The outstanding feature of the building is the use of cullet, or glass that is crushed and ready to be remelted. This aquamarine glass is formed into "ears" at the front corners of the building as well as being interspersed on the outer walls.
 

The porte-cochere with metal "arrows"

Some have suggested that these metal decorations look like the shaft and fletchings of an arrow, perhaps as a reference to Olkahoma's Native American heritage.
