OK. So this topic is for pictures of modern EO Churches you like and for comments of the Churches that would have been posters before. I'll sign out of the Orthodoxy all those who will post pictures of Churches they don't like, start debates whether modern architecture is 'canonical', try to switch the topic target to some other confessions (doesn't matter because of good or bad intentions) etc.


For a start:

I think Holy Ghost's cupola is really great, but the rest of the church kind of looks like a school building to me.

Interesting, it's in the Georgian style of architecture... and it's in the state of Georgia!

That is unique architecture. How are rainwaters and snow diverted off its roof?
One thing I have noticed about modern architecture: there seems to be little thought about rain and snow.
Therefore, many of our more modern churches in Los Angeles have problems whenever we have heavy rains.

That is unique architecture.

The architect was Jan Kabac. He also designed the aforementioned Resurrection Church in Białystok,

Nativity of St. John the Baptist Church in Hajnówka:

and soon-to-be-built St. John the Theologian Church in Białystok:
