ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the architectural design of the Bigelow Chapel in New Brighton, Minnesota. To create a sacred space that didn't overwhelm its quiet, 11-acrecampus setting, Joan Soranno, a design principal at Hammel, Green and Abrahamson, manipulated scale and light. She and her team conveyed the first two characteristics through six translucent, quilted-maple panels that ripple up and down the interior of the sanctuary's west-facing, glass-and-stainless-steel curtain wall. Maple floors and rectangular quilted-maple panels that extend into the sanctuary from the ceiling of a long processional hall on the east side of the building reinforce the sense of peaceful enclosure.
