I just thought about that church in Germany that astonished me when amor de cosmos brought it to the Cool Modern Architecture thread months ago. It could be called biconfessional, I guess, getting a Protestant and a Catholic community in the same odd building.

Prayer Pavillion by deBartolo Architects, Phoenix USA

Really simple, yet beautiful space at the edge of the mountains overlooking Phoenix.

^ Nothing weird, matter of taste. I find it sort of Disneyish, but it's fine. To me, that of Phoenix is the best so far.

Not sure about the coolest in the world, by one of my favorite, locally, is the modern St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in East Lansing, Michigan. The stained glass is excellent:

^ Yeah, good one. The modern stained glass facing the assembly is spectacular.

Here's an early modern work called 'Notre Dame du Raincy', built 1922-23, first one in France made of reinforced concrete in le Raincy, Paris's northern burbs. The work on light on the inside is a nice effort, it was quite innovative at that time regarding the materials, whether one likes it or not, but never could feature that kind of modern stained glass. Historically significant, it will be preserved from anything.

This massive structure is difficult to capture. I think it is possibly one of
the coolest modern day structures of it's kind, simply because of it's long
list of unique features, many of which are modern day marvels on a
grand global scale. I'll let the pics do most of the talking.


http://3.bp.blogspot.com

This structure is known as the L.D.S. Conference Center. It was
constructed in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City prior to the opening
of the 2002 Winter Olympics. It's main auditorium seats well over
21,000 people in cushy comfort, with no visual obstructions toward the
main podium and stage. This, while at the same time providing
amazing acoustics. Used as both a religious gathering place for large
semi-annual LDS Conferences, and also as a grand concert hall for
numerous secular and or non-denominational concerts and pageants, including
the weekly broadcasts of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, all provided free to
the public.

This waterfall cascades from the base of the steeple tower to the street level below.

http://m6.i.pbase.com

This large fountain pictured below is at the center of what is actually
the roof of the building. The roof itself, is a large garden,
with extensive waterworks. Also a large, natural mountain
meadow occupies approx. one quarter of the roof. You completely lose
perspective of being in the heart of a major urban center.

One of the many little details that I enjoyed most was this mountain stream, which runs the full length of
the curbside front of the building

Would the Familia Segrada be considered modern?

It still holds the art-nouveau style of the 19th century that it was designed in, so, no, it's not modern.
