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

    • St. Anotnius Kirche interior 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      In St. Antony wood is used for the ceiling while the walls are of brick. Seating is flexible with chairs. The altar/table in this church emphasizes the table function in its design and materials.
    • St. Gereon's Basilica, Cologne, Germany 

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

    • Liturgical area 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Seen from a distance the relationship of (left to right) the altar/table, choir, organ console and case work (seen from the side), seating for the clergy, paschal candle, ambo, baptistery, and crucifix.
    • The cross in stained glass 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Again, Ektachrome required two photos when the eye could simultaneously see the richness of the stained glass and the liturgical center.
    • Baptismal font 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
    • Notre Dame du Raincy Interior 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      The requirements for a new church in Raincy, a suburb of Paris, demanded a large church to be built with a limited budget. Perret won the competition because his design was the only church that met those requirements. ...

    • Liturgical center 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Left to right: pulpit, altar table, baptismal pool/font. The altar makes but the slightest bow to the Vatican II emphasis on altar as also a table.
    • Choir 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Choir of Koln Cathedral with contemporary altar and high altar with reliquary of the three magi at the head of the apse.
    • Approach to the main entry 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      The simplicity of the painted steel framing becomes evermore apparent as one approaches. The influence of Mies van der Rohe is apparent.
    • Passion Chapel 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      The Passion Chapel (lower chapel), designed by Charles Wyrsch, is built into the slope and can be entered from the road.
    • One of four main entry doors 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Jean Myers gives a sense of human scale to the size of the doors and church.
    • The great glass curtain wall by Dominikus Bohm and Heinz Bienefeld 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      The glory of the rectangular room is the incredibly wonderful wall of greenish/gray glass. And when the wind moves the leaves of the trees in the adjoining wood, the leaves of this wonderful glass wall seem to move as well.
    • The Annunciation 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      Set in a panel in the glass wall is a traditional but far more expensive stained glass interpretation of the Annunciation.
    • Church room seen from choir 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 1984)
      On the left, the organ is visible and the relationship of the pulpit to font and table becomes more apparent. The circular nature of the church and varied roof planes are at first disorientating when accustomed to simple ...
