The Wayfarers Chapel was designed by architect Lloyd Wright, son of the famous Frank Lloyd Wright.  Located along the coast of the Pacific Ocean in southern California, it was conceived as a “tree chapel,” a natural sanctuary set in the midst of a forest.  Stone and wood frame large glass windows that allow the trees, the sky, and the sea beyond to become the definition of the environment.  This gives the congregation protection from the elements while creating a sense of outer space as well as a sense of inner space.  Lloyd Wright succeeded in creating a sacred setting where nature and architecture unite.
