Religious buildings have a tradition of expressing their structure in a dramatic way, dating back to Gothic times. In Australian religious buildings, this was most often in the form of finely crafted timber roof structures. John XXIII Chapel, part of a primary and secondary college campus in Perth, continues this tradition with a beautifully detailed exposed roof structure of Jarrah trusses spanning almost 20 metres across the chapel.
