moving right along...




Now for some contrast.
The color splash that's part of the Academy chapel structure that you see in this picture actually  occurs on every spire..   The spires are built with a one-foot gap that's filled with stained glass.   The long view only shows the splash of color at the head of the chapel, but is apparent when you look up from where ever you stand.  The off-white stained glass rectangles are an understatement to all of that.  Symbolism everywhere.
The chapel was completed in 1962.
It's hard to stay focused on just one aspect of the chapel.  There are so many directions one could head.
