Glavin Family ChapelBabson College, Wellesley, MA
A 150 seat non-denominational chapel for the Babson College community is located at the edge of the campus center quadrangle in the heart of the college campus. Defined by two walls of glass and two opposing walls of wood paneling, the chapel looks out and opens onto a secluded garden and woods, including nature as a central theme in the religious experience. This is further reinforced by the hull shaped ceiling form, the wind blown sculpture tower, and the inlaid vegetal ornamentation of the alter and doors.
