Art deco chapels at Loyola University – Chicago

My wife is an architect; I have been well trained. If ever I go somewhere by myself, my chief responsibility is to take a ridiculous amount of photos of the churches I visit.

So for your enjoyment, some nice examples of art deco sacred architecture (mixed with some gothic elements). The main chapel at Loyola, Madonna Della Strada, speaks for itself. The smaller chapel is the Stella Maris Chapel, which is inside an approximately fourteen story art deco building that used to be a women’s college. (Click the picture to see all the photos).

One final note – while I have been trained to take photos, I haven’t been trained to take them well necessarily, at least, not as well as my wife.

    Have you and your wife seen the fine book, “Heavenly City: The Architectural Tradition of Catholic Chicago ” by Dennis McNamara? Astounding. Run and get it. It may also give your wife fodder to visit enough Chicago churches to fill many many gigabite camera cards…. Spent an afternoon driving all around the city on a recent visit….amazing.

    We have seen this book! It is beautiful, and we have a growing list of churches to visit in the city. It’s fairly odd though – we live nearby and I’m originally from Illinois, but we haven’t had much of a chance so far to visit these churches in Chicago. But we have some friends getting married at St. Mary of the Angels – so that’s definitely one that has been on our list for sometime.

    God bless!
