Architect Charles Cox designed the Catalina American Baptist Church (now known as Catalina Church of Midtown) built in 1960 at 1900 N. Country Club. The church uses a hyperbolic paraboloid as it’s roof structure, which also doubles as it’s walls. This allows large windows to be placed on two sides of the structure, creating a striking appearance. The church went through a renovation recently completed by architect Chris Evans.
This is part of a series of important Tucson architects. Next week we’ll be focusing on Arthur T. Brown, a well known Tucson mid-century modern architect who was also known for using hyperbolic paraboloid roofing structures on homes and carports.
