Suzanne Morgan, Founder

Founder of Sacred Space International, Suzanne Morgan, is an architect and graduate of the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. In 1999, she opened the Upper Room, an interfaith prayer space in Chicago’s financial district. Stunned by the events of 9/11, she decided to address the need for religious literacy by opening SSI to educate the public about the world’s religions through the nonverbal and universal medium of architecture.

This event began at the Science Academy of Chicago located in Mount Prospect, IL, with a 30-minute slideshow presentation as an introduction to Abraham and the three monotheistic religions.


Suzanne gave a four-part lecture series that takes a look at 14 different religious and spiritual traditions from the perspective of recognizing both the similarities that exist among them and the uniqueness each offers.


Four of the Morgan Models were exhibited on the main floor of the National Hellenic Museum with backboards that displayed colored photographs as well as interpretive text for the duration of one year.
