Built in the rugged desert terrain, this chapel's dominant element, the 90-foot-high cross, is also its major loadbearing structural element and extends 30 feet below the main floor into a cleft between the surrounding buttes. The interior, exterior, ramps, and retaining walls were all built with reinforced, sandblasted, integrally colored concrete.
