Designed by noted Pacific Northwest architect Paul Thiry in 1968, the Flanagan Chapel is one of the most iconic and beloved buildings on campus, with its conical shape and the unique patterns of its exterior brick paying homage to Northwest Native American culture. Our renovation respected the historic and expressive character of the beloved main room, while enabling it to host a wider variety of events and addressing accessibility issues. Improvements included a sprung dance floor, acoustical reflectors, theatrical lighting, energy efficiency and an ADA lift. The Chapel is now used regularly for worship services, lectures, concerts, musical performances and other campus events.
