In the 1950s the brethren at the Benedictine Abbey of Saint John the Baptist in Collegeville, Minnesota decided to expand their campus, including building a new church. This book documents the dialogue of the design process, showcasing the importance of modernism in the design of sacred space and of architect Marcel Breuer’s role in setting the standard.
