Our Lady Comforter of the Afflicted, Waltham, MA

This suburban church appears similar to countless red brick churches across the country. However look closer and there are a few details that stand out. The front entrance and side elevations all sport an undulated concrete awning which gives the building a little verve and also distinguishes it from similar overall designs from the 1980s and 90s that would not include such a detail. The wall of glass that runs from ground to roof on the front facade also calls note to a more mid-century design. The church itself was built in The 1962-63, and also includes several school and auxiliary buildings from the same era.
