Abstract This paper will investigate a particular tradition of patterns within the archetitectural Modernism, particularly as it has harboured within design for church-related projects. It will discussthe history of Melbourne (1959) and the Korowa Girls school (1964); and then present a more recent religious work of Melbourne based Phillip Harmer- the Gatehouse Mausoleum, Melbourne Cemetery (2004). A system of repeating cross forms will be discussed as the particular device utilising in the both the post-war and recent work. The paper will examine the authorship of the Bogle and Banfield works, and locate them within precedents and trends in the architecture in at the time in the late 1950s. It will also investigate some post-war uses of the cross as a signifier of type, coupled with the modern expression of repetition.
