In 1975 the Conference of Mennonites in Canada built the chapel at Canadian Mennonite Bible College (now CMU). Rudy Friesen wrote in the Mennonite Mirror, April 1975, page 7: “It was agreed that the chapel should be simple and unadorned, yet strong and bold. . . . The large barn-like trusses on the inside continue this feeling of strength, and as such form the only decoration. To express man’s impurity, the geometric pureness of the box is disrupted at its southwest corner where an angled skylight provides sunshine to the interior. . . . Therefore, both inside and out, this building is honest in its expression, contemporary in its use of materials, bold in its form, yet humble in its feeling.”
