Christ Church Lutheran: A Saarinen gem

Unless you’re an architecture buff, you probably haven’t heard of Christ Church Lutheran. It’s an elegant, modern church that was named one of the “31 buildings that changed American life.” And it’s right in our own backyard, located in the Longfellow neighborhood in south Minneapolis.

Here’s a link to Saarinen’s Wikipedia entry. Unless you’ve spent some time in Finland (or Des Moines, IA), you may not be familiar with his other work.
