Christ the King Jesuit College Preparatory School, a private high school in a poverty-stricken neighborhood of Chicago,  is based on the Jesuit educational concept of Corus Personalis, or care of the whole person.  The school is conceived of as a body with chapel, library, gym and dining hall serving as the vital organs of heart, mind, lungs, etc.  So too did John Ronan AIA of Chicago, consider the immediate surroundings, the teachings  and how to ignite the student’s faith in one of the Jesuit institution’s key spaces: the Chapel of St. Ignatius Loyola.

The 45-by-67-foot room seats 200 and is surrounded by three walls of daylight filtered through the floor-to-ceiling glass block, minimal, bright and elegant.  The building’s façade of multi-colored fiber-reinforced cement panels and playful window rhythms serve to give identity to this business-like approach to education.   The school’s steel & precast concrete structure and rain screen cladding was specifically designed to meet the project’s modest budget of $22 million.

Students not only come for the service but also may find quiet time in its simple space of light and strength.

Have an infinitely modern day!
