Carr Memorial Chapel is Mies van der Rohe’s only ecclesiastical design and a significant building on the Illinois Institute of Technology campus. The building is a simple, one story masonry bearing wall structure with glazed walls at the east and west ends. The interior is a column free space with exposed brick walls, black terrazzo floor and a travertine altar. A small support space is located behind the altar, housing a toilet room and storage. In 2001, the project architects prepared a building assessment report. In 2008, the architect completed construction documents for the full restoration of the chapel and the exterior restoration was completed in the summer of 2009. The exterior restoration included masonry repairs and cleaning, roof replacement, and restoration of the window walls. The first phase of the interior restoration was completed in the summer of 2011 and included cleaning of the interior brick walls, wood paneling, terrazzo floor, and concrete ceiling in the sanctuary. The second phase included the renovation of the back of house spaces, including the toilet room, and was completed in the summer of 2015. Interior work included making the chapel more functional and accessible to users while maintaining the historic integrity of Mies’ design. The end product is a functional, more accessible space with restored finishes and details that respect the architectural character of Mies’ original design.
