Angel Cannon Chapel Column Capitals
My post about Pitts Theology Library at Emory University said I'd get back the Emory's Cannon Chapel. It's a brutalist building that doesn't seem brutal, a complex building that easy to navigate, a big building that's not intimidating, an odd building with gentle delights around every corner. (Christa suggested I mention my post about Agnes Scott's new Julia Thompson Smith Chapel by Maurice Jennings architects. I haven't been inside yet.)
It's covered in abstract concrete angel wings.
It's interesting that the downspouts appear to be columns, very skinny ones. Notice the angle pattern on the barrel roofs.
I think these windows have angel details too:
It's well worth a walk-though if you are near Emory University.
Thanks and best wishes for your family for Thanksgiving.
