    Waterloo Lutheran Seminary

    75 University Avenue West, Waterloo, ON.
    constructed: 1963

    “A set of simple volumes defines a small courtyard with a garden and cloister walk evoking mediaeval monastic precedents. The heavy split-face sandstone walls of the worship space anchor the complex firmly to the site, capped by the smooth white cross vaults of the room floating on a band of clerestory glazing.”
