Kansas City Missouri Temple

Though similar in massing to other kindred religious structures, the Kansas City Missouri Temple for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints offers unique design and detailing. Its quality is especially apparent in the architectural precast concrete panels that clad the exterior. The panels incorporate an olive-branch motif that carries throughout the design and feature details and stepping for corners, cornices, and windows.

Situated on an east-west axis, the structure consists of three above-grade levels for patron use and a basement for mechanical systems. Abundant windows feature decorative art glass that highlights the olive-branch emblem. Landscaping is complemented by planters embedded in the precast concrete walls along the entrance plazas.
