1117. M.I.T. Chapel, Cambridge, MASS.















Dear Aline,

"I have always remembered one night on my travels as a
student when I sat in a mountain village in Sparta. There
was bright moonlight over head and then there was a soft,
hushed secondary light around the horizon. That sort of
bilateral lighting seemed best to achieve this otherworldly
sense. Thus, the central light would come from above the
altar-dramatized by the shimmering golden screen by Harry
Bertoia- and the secondary light would be light reflected up
from the surrounding moat through the arches"
(Eero Saarinen)

Best wishes,
R
