The San Diego org features a Hubbard display next to the ground-floor Information Center, where 500 videos can be viewed about the religion spawned by his mid-20th century best-seller "Dianetics."

Also here: a "Purification" area with treadmills and saunas, a small cafe, classrooms with seating for 400 to learn how to "audit" members, small rooms for "exams" with e-meters (ultramodern styles are on display; "we think they're snazzy," Banks said) and a bookstore — carrying Hubbard materials and lectures but not his science fiction or fantasy works.

The church — transformed in 16 months and designed by elite international firm Gensler — has no traditional sanctuary or signs of God.
