The pre Vatican II altar set up enhances even an ultra modern church interior. That is certainly true of this chapel. While I don’t like the exterior, I do like the interior.

Agree, the pre-VII altar setup easily makes even the most unappealing space look better. Also, agree, I do not care for the exterior. Third agreement, I do like this interior. I just wonder, however, if looking at this style of interior, week in and out, would become tiresome. I wonder how easily this interior could be made to look cheerful for Christmas and celebratory/triumphant for Easter. Again, while I like this style, it being monochromatic and a bit heavy might drive me, from time to time, to seek some color.
I saw the interior of this chapel at least 5 times a day for three years. I never got tired of it. It was one of the most beautiful places of worship that I have ever known. Even though I am no longer Catholic, this place always will have a special meaning to me in spite of the fact that it no longer exists. :-)
