Architecture of Bigelow Chapel

The architectural award-winning Bigelow Chapel is an innovative structure of “floating” planes of glass, pre-cast stone walls, and a series of translucent curving wood panels that cast a warm glow and provide a tranquil environment for worship and prayer.

Architects: Joan Soranno and John Cook - Hammel, Green and Abrahamson, Inc. Construction Firm - M.A. Mortenson Company
