St Lawrence and Mary Immaculate Church

This is the St Lawrence and Mary Immaculate Church in Balcatta, designed by, I believe, James Aris in the late 60s. But can’t say for sure. Very strong suburban church, square plan with a great hyperbolic parabolid roof form. The deep fascia hovers above the ribbed brickwork and glazed walls, and the giant miesian negative corner details are a treat!
