Chapel of the Month – March 2015

This month we haven chosen something a little different as our Chapel of the Month.

Chapel of St Albert the Great

Chapel of St Albert the Great

The Chapels Society generally concentrates its attention on historic chapels but we are also interested in the continuing evolution of chapel architecture and so it seems appropriate to share an example of a newly finished building – the Roman Catholic Chapel of St Albert the Great built for St Albert’s Catholic Chaplaincy, which exists to serve Catholic students and staff at the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University and Queen Margaret University.

This elegant new building situated close to George Square was designed by Simpson and Brown Architects and has been the recipient of a number of architeural awards.
