st. barnabas church, shacklewell, hackney, london
the exterior of sir charles reilly's 1909-11 church is hemmed in by other buildings and hard to see in its entirety, this is the west end. reilly was a modernist in love with america, and this looks like a voysey factory or an a.e.g. turbine hall rather than anything else. perhaps he saw it as a machine for praying in.
