Chapel of the Advocate- Loyola Law School

The Chapel was designed by Frank Gehry, with wood as the predominant architectural material, in order to suggest to visitors the stable at Bethlehem. The soft wood tones afford a contrast with the concrete and steel that is featured throughout the campus. The cave motif is furthered by having steps down into the space, rather than a straightforward entrance from the central mall as do the other buildings. The interior, with comfortable seating, natural light from large windows and stained glass in the ceiling, provides a sense of intimacy and warmth for those who enter the chapel.
