Video: Enter the Ethereal Spaces of Los Angeles' Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels

A soaring contemporary space for the divine, The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels opened to the public in 2002. Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning Spanish architect Rafael Moneo, the Roman Catholic cathedral is a monument to the successes of postmodernism deep in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. The cathedral features modernist decoration, from angular wooden pews to steel chandeliers complete with blown glass orbs, and can host up to 3,000 visitors in its sunlight spaces with ample outdoor space in the adjacent gardens and plaza.

Recently, filmmaker-photographer Chang Kim explored the transcendent space as a part of his video series on inspired architectural spaces in Southern California. Enter the spiritual world of Los Angeles' Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels with Kim's video and be sure to explore the rest of his work here
