Eden Seminary, Webster Groves

Eden Seminary, in Webster Groves features a beautiful, if standard English Gothic main building, but I’m more intrigued by the library built in the lawn in front of the older academic hall.

The massing of this strange, Brutalist building seems to be the same as some traditional depictions of the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem.

Take a look for yourself here, and see if there’s a correlation. It would make sense, considering it’s a seminary’s library.
