2010 Neo-Gothic Chapel

This 2010 Herriman chapel is a beautiful addition to the standard model, with pointed gothic arches and brickwork suggestive of medieval flying buttresses. It’s the only recent LDS meetinghouse I’ve seen using gothic motifs. I’ve also seen medieval English churches with exactly this kind of brickwork in their walls, presumably as a way of reinforcing a load-bearing wall.
