Among the things I find fascinating about Los Angeles is the incredibly wide variety of architectural styles and cultural references that can be found all over the city, at least in the interesting parts.  The streetscape is typical of LA, but the church looks as if it had been lifted from someplace in Russia, which I guess is the point.  What has struck me from the time I first saw this church is it's stark simplicity in its lower stories and the intricacy and delicacy of the minarets that ascend to the top.
