    • Baptismal pool 

      Bruggink, Donald J.
      This Baptist church provides for a central focus on adult Baptism which takes place in the liturgical center as the floor can slide away.
    • Beauty and tranquility 

      Bruggink, Donald J.
    • A calming pool before the opportunity to worship 

      Bruggink, Donald J.
      Across the pool one can see the liturgical center on the far side of the great worship room.
    • Continued mystery 

      Bruggink, Donald J.
      What is the purpose of the concrete projection into the midst of the tranquil pool?
    • Continued revelation 

      Bruggink, Donald J.
      The Water Temple is appropriately covered with water lilies.
    • Descent to worship 

      Bruggink, Donald J.
      The concrete projection reveals itself as a staircase leading into the depths of the pool. From this angle the water lilies seem to be extremely well ordered.
    • Dining room pool 

      Bruggink, Donald J.
      OSHA might not approve but the use of tile, water, light, and colors make an enchanting ensemble of this in-dining room pool. (Perfect for aesthetes if not for swimming) Note the subtle illumination from above.

    • Exterior of the great worship room 

      Bruggink, Donald J.
      Across the entry pool is the gently arched window leading into the main worship room. The interior ceiling structure gives its contours to the external roof.

    • Hospitality

      The Guilardi's provided hospitality for our group.
    • Neutra church room detail 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      The esthetic ambiance of the Neutra building was increased by one side being parallel by a pool.
    • Pool 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1977)
      A pool in the home of the Vestal Virgins

    • Pool with human scale to the left 

      Bruggink, Donald J.
      Note the two steps for entry.
    • Pool with water lilies 

      Bruggink, Donald J.
    • Swimming pool for horses 

      Bruggink, Donald J.
      It would seem that the swimming pool is more for horses than for humans. The color palette is quintessential Barragan.
