Chapel of St. Ignatius at Seattle University.

St. Ignatius is tiny compared the churches of other Jesuit universities such as Maquette, San Francisco, or Gonzaga. But the architecture of it is so beautiful. I recently took a tour of it for my Restorative Solitude class and it’s incredible how every single detail has some kind of symbolism. From the lighting and the floor has something to say. I’m kind of glad that they didn’t mimic the same gothic-style architecture as the aforementioned universities. It makes our campus different.
