|JLG Architects receive state design award for Hopper-Danley Memorial Chapel|
On Sept. 9 at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) North Dakota Awards Gala in Bismarck, JLG Architects received a Merit Award for their work on the University of North Dakota's Hopper-Danley Memorial Chapel, among several other awards. The awards, part of the 2008 AIA Conference and Building Products Exposition, were "presented for distinguished accomplishments in design and the profession of architecture."
The Hopper-Danley Memorial Chapel is located in the heart of the University of North Dakota campus. Its purpose is to serve as an interfaith chapel for the student body and staff of UND. With its iconic massing and simple detailing, the Chapel strives to evoke the memories and references of our faith roots while providing an unbiased atmosphere that is welcoming to all. The siting of the Chapel compliments the adjacent Memorial Wall and outdoor dedication space, and together, they create a serene and peaceful environment where students and staff may find the privacy to rest and reflect within the surrounds of campus life. The Chapel was financially possible through an alumni gift to the UND Foundation.
