Beginning with Mies’ chapel at IIT, this quick project extrapolates his frame-and-infill, steel-and-brick, pavilion into a basilica form, with a full apse and a hipped roof.  A square skylight orients the modernist square volume, while dormer gables pierce the trabeated apse.  A more exuberant roof study follows.
