Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, USA

Beth Sholom Synagogue, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. “Wright sought to evoke the image of cupped hands with the building’s design, as if congregants were “resting in the very hands of God.” The main structure, suspended from a 160-ton steel tripod frame, creates a 1,030-seat space, free from internal supports. A pyramidal translucent roof, comprised of a double layer of sanded white glass and corrugated fiberglass, infuses the space with ethereal natural light during the day and glows like a beacon at night.” (Excerpt from: https://franklloydwright.org/site/beth-sholom-synagogue-preservation-foundation/).
