If your spirit has been touched by the iconic glass chapel on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, please read on. Inspired by a drive he took along the California coast in the 1940s, architect Lloyd Wright designed a sublime, transparent chapel surrounded by a grove of redwood trees. A beloved sacred space for seven decades, Wayfarers Chapel has brought together families and friends for weddings, baptisms, memorials and Sunday worship. If you care about this important place you’ll want to know about plans underway to preserve this landmark. Seventy years of weathering and salt-sea air has caused severe rusting of the structural steel, which in turn has compromised the foundation. The roof ridge is out of alignment and there are cracked panels of glass as well as other serious problems. The Chapel needs these repairs urgently if we expect it to survive as we know and love it for coming generations of visitors seeking its regenerative purpose.
