Trinity Lutheran Church, Pittsburgh, PA

Facing Allegheny Commons Park on W. North Avenue is Trinity Lutheran Church. The surrounding blocks are mostly in the Mexican War Streets Historic District, so it’s unclear why the strip along W. North Street includes this building and at least two other mid-century churches. This one, built in 1963, features a low, sloped roof of wood shingle that dominates the overall appearance of the building and site. The facade and retaining walls are finished in a horizontal stone.

The stained glass on either side of the entrance looks to be embedded in concrete as in the Dalle de Verre technique.
