modernism in temple garb

GALLERY_04

Though taking its detailing from Greek antiquity, with a Doric portico in antis, this small structure is thoroughly modern in its four-square plan.  One enters off-center, in fact, the center is occupied by a column, and the front portico is only made of two columns, with one corner being a bearing wall (this wall is the in antis part).  An exedra flanks the main skylit volume.  Two variations follow.
