The Crystal Cathedral is based in Garden Grove, Orange County, California.It is Dr. Robert h. Schuller and ARVELLA Mrs. They built their church in a lot of which until then was known as “Garden Grove Community Church”. The building of the sanctuary was designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson. It was created with 10,000 rectangular glass plates.

We can mention as a curious fact, that the Crystal Cathedral and its pastor, Reverend Robert h. Schuller, were represented in his ninth season in an episode of the Simpsons. Famous Homer Simpson is naked in the glass of roof Church probe, while the Reverend really sermon. It gives us an idea of the level of awareness that this church. He was also the subject of many programs in the channels such as Discovery Channel, history channel, and others.
What most people don’t really know is that the artwork is in fact the result of a personal idea. For many years, Rev. dreamed. Schuller of the construction of a majestic Cathedral of glass only. Everyone said that it was completely impossible. The idea that construction of a church in glass as a result of earthquakes and other natural disasters as various was usually very dangerous experiences California as a result of earthquakes. It is in reality of the facts. A building of glass would certainly fall with a small earthquake, of course with the technology of the time. However, the Reverend has a feature that most people do not have. This spark which it materialized an idea in a work of art. He had a goal. He has tried for years to a person who would take an act of faith and say “Yes”, his proposal. But he never did.
Of course, now we see what was the Reverend. If it not much stress and be loved target, would not the larger Cathedral of all time.
This proves a fact that has become much clearer from year to year. The possibility of creating increases much more impossible constructions per year. 50 Years ago, when the Reverend, tried to build the large Cathedral, it was impossible to think about to sleep on a glass building. Today we can see, glass building in cities and shinny constructions, which would have been impossible years ago. Why science was so over the years to come? The truth is that mankind has no idea why the technology has developed much in the last century. Architecture has shown great progress of course above all in the last fifty years. The Crystal Cathedral is a revolutionary building, is considered one of the wonders of the world possible.The majestic appearance of the place is really a heavenly place. Today, with a goal and bring are in fact much more possible. This fact should push developers and people build their homes, their ideas and production of one-off pieces of art to explode. Today we are on the possibility of creating almost anything that we can imagine. Architecture is much wider every day.
