The First Christian Church was designed by O’Neil Ford and Howard Wong and completed in 1959. The concrete roof is a hyperbolic paraboloid (a favorite Ford technique engineered by Felix Candela) supported by ten concrete columns. The resulting roof sections represent the fingers of hands extended upwards in prayer. The intricately carved doors are by Lynn Ford.
