Firmin Desloge Tower, Saint Louis University Hospital

I first spotted the beautiful copper roof of SLU Hospital’s Firmin Desloge Tower from the windows of the Gateway Arch in the first couple of days I lived in St. Louis, back in the Christmas of 1985/early January 1986.

It had held up to the passage of time, and I hope that once the new SLU Hospital is built, that perhaps this could serve as offices or perhaps a stunning hotel.

The chapel is a unique, little Gothic Revival church.

Right now is a great time to view the hospital in splendid isolation, before construction begins, blocking these views again for generations.

Senior citizens interested in attending a two-part lecture June 22 and 29, 2017 from 10:00-12:00 on the work of famous architects who also left their mark on St. Louis architecture with Chris Naffziger at OASIS in Clayton can register at this link.
