I had a friend who recently told me that many of the modern LDS temples look
like "glorified funeral homes" to him. Oh boy. That has got me to
thinking. The architects need to do something different. I was disappointed in
the Palmyra Temple as it definitely does not blend well with the 19th century
architecture of the Palmyra, New York Township. Call me old fashioned but the
older Temples from the 19th century to the mid 20th century are most often the
most beautiful and magnificent. The Cardston, Alberta Temple is very unique in
design and none of the modern temples look anything like that very unique and
beautiful building. It would be amazing if each and every temple had a
different and non-typical design. The Calgary Temple looks like yet another
cookie cutter temple design that is simply another variation on the same theme
that has been going on for about 25 or 30 years. Perhaps it is a culture of
uniformity that has influenced the modern temple designs.
mightymit, I'm surely impressed that while you can't spell, you
continue to comment on each temple dedication.Must be boring in your
I've seen this building and it kind of reminded me of the one in cardston.
Is there a reason they're somewhat monolithic in architectural style? The
lines are clean but it's not a style that I'd call grand or elegant or
inspiring, as architecture. I was just curious, and I realise architecture, as
an aesthetic artform, is subjective.
