"The New Harmony Roofless Church is an exercise in defining a sacred space. The assembly is surrounded by a twelve-foot wall. The entry is through decorative gates by Jacques Lipchitz into a forecourt of dense planting. A paved court defines a fifty-foot high lobed dome, covered with cedar shingles. Within this dome is the statue of "The Descent of the Holy Spirit" by Jacques Lipchitz. A balcony at one side of the paved court looks out over the valley of the Wabash River." --
