This lovely small chapel building is tucked at an angle among larger hospital structures to allow light to flood through abstract stained glass at the corners and in the clerestory. It is made of concentric chambers designed for groups up to 150 or for individuals in need of solitude. The central chamber under the skylight is brightly illuminated with smaller more dimly lit outer chambers. Universal symbols of the divine common to many religions combine with honesty of material and form. A granite fountain flows through the entry wall into the space beyond.
