      Willett windows.
    • 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.
    • Biblical scenes in Sainte Chapelle's windows 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1978)
      One wonders if Calvin was able to appreciate their beauty as well as their Biblical scenes.
    • The bridge of hoped for returns 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 2000)
      The lobby aperature gives a appropriate view of the suspension bridge for a return from the museum. (The exhibition of artworks is as lavish as the few portions of the museum where photography is allowed).
    • Ceiling structure 

      Bruggink, Donald J.
      The ceiling structure culminates in additonal clerestories forming a cross.
    • Chapel interior 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 2000)
      Interior of the "chapel" with a cross incised in the "east wall."
    • Chapel interior 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 2000)
      A floor to ceiling window illumines the chapel with very spare pews and liturgical furniture which constitute typical Ando minimalism. Concrete and steel are all that are needed for this aesthically elegant interior.
    • Chapel on Mount Rokko 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 2000)
      Note slit window on left edge of church.
    • 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.
    • Close up of the altar/table 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
      The altar/table reflects the impact of the liturgical movement, even prior to Vatican II.
    • A Close-up of the Iconostasis 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1982)

    • The color of the stained glass in the south wall

    • The color of the stained glass in the south wall 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      The stained glass of the playfully indented windows are photographed to achieve the proper perception of color.
    • 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.
    • Exterior 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
      With triangles containing stained glass.
    • Façade with stained glass and mosaic above entry doors 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1988)
    • Fenestration 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1969)
      Le Corbusier deep set his windows with bits of colored glass and iconography giving a sense both of mystery, playfulness, and joy, all of which may be considered appropriate to worship.
    • Fenestration 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1973)
      The well lit interior is made possible by the large windows.
