Abstract

Christ Church Lutheran in Minneapolis, Minnesota, was designed by Eliel Saarinen, then 75, and added to by his son Eero Saarinen 10 years later. Deeply loved by its community, it also serves as a touching example of the relationship between the father and the son. This present examination looks at the building on various scales, underscoring the finesse and material elegance of the building complex, the spatial genius and expertise of Eliel Saarinen, and the deferential addition by Eero.
