The building was designed by Gyo Obata of Hellmuth, Obata and Kassabaum (HOK)and Italian architect and engineer Pier Luigi Nervi serving as consultant. The church was viewed as a landmark project for HOK, as of 2006 the world's largest architectural firm. The building circular facade consists of three tiers of whitewashed, thin-poured concrete parabolic arches, the top one forming a bell-tower. The walls appearing black from the outside are translucent fiberglass which admit subdued light when viewed from the interior.
