The Idaho Falls, Idaho Temple is the tenth constructed and operating temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints or LDS Church.  It was constrcuted in 1945.  CRSA was contracted to help replace the temple's many aesthetically important windows which surround this historic building's exterior.  This work included site visits witha an inventory of all window sizes and locations, research into the past construction of windows, and final recommendations for design and installation. Art glass windows, with patterns designed by 'Architectural Art Glass,' now cover the building envelope providing aesthetics that accentuate the buildings geometric design.  CRSA was also involved with the addition of art glass to the vestibules at a later date.
A view of the Temples West facade and some of the windows that were replaced.  Some of the larger windows were over 9'-0" in height. The contractor installed a majority of the windows in a three week period of time.
 

The above image shows the windows as they are lighted at night.
This image portrays how the new window design helps to accentuate the gridlike or geometical patterns on the outside of the building. Mullions were placed to match stone placement and colored glass to mimic concrete window patterns.
Again, a night view of the windows.
This is an image of one of the windows during construction.  It is a beautiful addition to this historic building.
