Moody & Moore
University of Manitoba
1958 – Chapel, St. John’s College, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg
Architect: Moody & Moore
One of the founding colleges of the University of Manitoba, St. John’s was originally based downtown, and has an Anglican ethos. The new college consisting of teaching facilities, dormitories and a fine chapel was completed in 1958.
The previous buildings downtown were sadly demolished. The dominant feature is the chapel with its ornamental metal fleche and linked to the main building by a glazed hallway – a modern interpretation of a cloister.
