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.
