    Description :

    Berlage uses a complex play of cubic forms for a Christian Science church in Den Haag (1925–1926). The church sanctuary itself is a biaxial composition of a square turned 45-degrees on another square, but asymmetry is introduced in the ancillary buildings, and this aspect is emphasized in the presentation drawing.
