Christ Church Lutheran (Minneapolis, Minnesota)

Summary
Christ Church Lutheran is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) in Minneapolis. Its buildings—a sanctuary with chapel (1949) and an education wing (1962) designed by Finnish-American architects Eliel Saarinen and Eero Saarinen—have been internationally recognized, most recently in 2009 as a National Historic Landmark by the U.S Department of the Interior.

Robert Buckley Farlee and the Rev. Martin A. Seltz. Structures The International Style worship building was designed by the firm Saarinen and Saarinen,
