FIRST CHRIS­TIAN CHURCH

Where Phoenix - - WHERE NOW -

The de­signs for First Chris­tian Church in Phoenix were orig­i­nally planned for the South­west Chris­tian Sem­i­nary, which Wright was com­mis­sioned for in 1949. After plans to build the sem­i­nary were scrapped, Wright’s widow granted per­mis­sion for his de­signs to be used for the church. Built in 1971, the tri­an­gu­lar church spire reaches 77 feet high, and na­tive stones are blended into the walls.
