I will present “Ethical Society Building 50th Anniversary Celebration: Reflections on Harris Armstrong’s Design” shedding light on the architect’s creative process and the Society’s journey from its original St. Louis City home in the Sheldon Memorial to the current iconic mid-century modern structure on Clayton Road in 1965.

Preliminary design and models will be presented as well as the evolution toward its ultimate form. Armstrong's other designs for religious structures will be discussed as well as significant modernist religious structures designed by his contemporaries.
