Eero’s Christ Church in Minnesota


This church was designed by the father and son duo of Eliel and Eero Saarinen.  Originally the congregation pushed for a Gothic Revival design style but due to budget problems they decided to trust the Saarinen’s vision.  This church opened in 1948 and is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Connected to the church is an education building as well as another hall where the congregation can host events.  Today it is considered a masterpiece of modern worship architecture.  Artists who perform during services have commented on the building’s perfect acoustics for instruments and choirs.  The Christ Church is also one of only two worship buildings to receive the American Institute of Architects Twenty-five Year Award.
