About

Designed in collaboration between Pietro Belluschi and Maryland architects Rogers, Taliaferro and Lamb (later known as RTKL associates), the Church of the Redeemer showcases one of the earliest examples of non-traditional church architecture in the region. The loggia columns and the church’s low walls are adorned with the same stone used in the previous 1858 Gothic Revival chapel. Inspired by Japanese architecture, Belluschi incorporated roof forms and six courtyards that offer serene spaces for contemplation. A notable feature of the church is the abstract stained glass altar screen created by Gy├Ârgy Kepes, made of intricately hand-cut pieces of colorful glass. Since its construction ended in 1958, the Church of the Redeemer has continued to serve the Episcopal congregation in Baltimore.
