Architecture and Culture, Part I

Sometimes it seems as though architectural and
community design unconsciously express cultural values.
Wait! Before you run off, rolling your eyes
at such academic claptrap,
I have a few examples.

1. Evergreen United Methodist Church, Chapel Hill, NC.
Built largely by the members themselves,
mostly earnest hardworking suburbanites.
The building, with its circular approach,
resembles nothing so much as a magnificent,
glorious – home on a cul-de-sac, which,
coincidentally? is the housing pinnacle around here.
