"The Church is considered Bernard Maybeck's masterpiece. In the words of Kenneth Cardwell, Maybeck's biographer, 'No other building demonstrates so completely Maybeck's imaginative architectural genius [...] with its masterly handling of space, structure, color, and light.' Others have remarked that it is one of the Bay Area's greatest architectural monuments, a monument of inner beauty and strength, an inspiration for unique formulations of space, light, and texture and perhaps simply one of the great buildings of the world. Indeed, most anthologies on American architecture include this church." Text by Susan Cerny. More links are included at the bottom of this page.
