Robert F. Carr Memorial Chapel of St. Savior
65 E. 32nd Street

The Robert F. Carr Memorial Chapel of St. Savior was designed by Mies van der Rohe and built in 1952. It is the only building designed by Mies for religious services. Unique among the single-story pavilions on campus, the chapel has load-bearing brick walls, not a steel frame.

Located near Michigan Avenue and 32nd Street, the chapel -- affectionately nicknamed "the God box" -- is the center of campus spiritual life. Individuals and groups of all faiths are welcome to use the chapel for meetings, services, and meditation.
