Chapel of St. Ignatius of Loyola

The Chapel of St. Ignatius of Loyola at Christ the King Jesuit College Preparatory School in Chicago is illuminated by the natural light that filters through three walls of varying-sized glass block.

In contrast to its three glass walls, the chapel's fourth wall is clad in cement panels with nearly 4-inch-square, cross-shaped perforations. Natural light filters in and reflects off of the polished concrete floors.

The chapel, with its glass-block walls, anchors the east end of the school building.
