    • The Baptistery 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Reflecting the ancient practice of a baptistery separate from the church, this baptistery is attached to the church room and boasts elegant stained glass by Jean Bazaine.
    • Church interior as seen from balcony 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Additional light and the full range of possibilities of the floor to ceiling windows plus wall iconography give further dynamism and warmth to the concrete of the massive walls.

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)

    • East wall with Virgin and votive candles 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      From this angle along the south wall, the disruptive floor to ceiling windows disappear and the sacral display of votive candles lead the eye upward to the small window with an image of the Virgin.
    • East window 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      The etched glass window behind the liturgical center is quite lovely but even with the wall directly behind altar and pulpit, one wonders whether or not the window proves to be a distraction behind the liturgical action.
    • Great church room with multiple perimeter chapels 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      From left to right: a chapel with the great rose window and perhaps a monumental structure to hold the tabernacle. Toward the center of the photo, a side chapel marked only by a semiabstract hanging with the extended hand ...
    • The great rose window, Gottfried Bohm, artist 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Here Bohm's great rose window comes into full view, perhaps a reference to the biblical "Rose of Sharon," seen in the Middle Ages as an Old Testament symbol of Christ. The rose itself is set in an abstract filigree surmounted ...

    • The interior of Notre Dame du Haut 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      In the foreground, one senses the uneven stone work of a sloping floor. To the side are pews which will seat fifty of the rooms capacity of two hundred. In front are the communion rails, on the slightly raised platform of ...
    • Interior of the Evangelischer Versöhnungskirche 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      The warmth of the wood of the pews together with the stained glass floor-to-ceiling windows give some relief from the bare concrete walls which nonetheless give a certain aura of austere majesty. The altar/table is off the ...
    • Interior of Wallfahrskirche 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      A slightly different angle from another lower balcony gives yet another perspective of the church room including the concrete stairway to the great pulpit. The great windows, also designed by the architect, begin to make ...
    • Interior with Bohm window 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Once again, 1984 Ektachrome could not replicate what the eye could see in its ability to span light and dark.
