It could hardly have been more perfect. Early on a Sunday morning. The campus to ourselves. When we finally encountered a security guard, she stopped to tell us that the chapel was open and that we were welcome to go in.
I have to tell you, you cannot appreciate this man's genius until you visit one of his creations. It takes control of your senses. I found myself being lead as if through a ring in my nose... by my eyes. Shadows and light. Angles and focal points, all worked together to draw me ever deeper into the structures. It was fascinating.
I have prepared a few photos (none of which do the place justice). I hope you enjoy.
|The main building.|
|Plazas, people spaces, beckon toward portals that promise enlightenment within.|
|The campus is connected by covered walks that, with their angles, overhang and ornate details, are a feast for the eyes as you walk about in a lush, green Florida environment.|
|Inside of the main chapel. A riot of texture and light.|
