Things to do while visiting Los Angeles--Landmarks
|Designed by Brook Hawkins and completed in January 1923, Angelus Temple served as the operational base of Aimee Semple MacPherson, founder of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, now a worldwide Pentecostal Christian denomination. Mrs. McPherson, a pioneer in religious broadcasting and the first woman to receive an FCC radio license, was also involved in humanitarian ministry, feeding thousands of hungry people during the Great Depression.|
The main architectural feature of the fireproof Angelus Temple is its large, unsupported concrete dome coated with a mixture of ground abalone shells. At the time of its construction, the dome was the largest in North America, rising 125 feet above the auditorium’s 5,300 seats. The ceiling is decorated with a panorama of clouds painted by artist Anne Henneke, and its stained glass windows were created by artist George Haskins.
