Episcopal Seminary of Southwest

-A A +A
1956, Fehr and Granger and Mackie and Kamrath. 501 E. 32nd St.

It is easy to miss this orderly modernist ecclesiastical campus nestled in a residential neighborhood. The buildings face inward around a central green space, yet the organization of the space and the mature live oak trees make the campus seem more like a retreat center than an extension of the adjacent University of Texas's busy and sprawling campus. New buildings have been added to the site since the original design but the campus still feels close-knit and peaceful.
