Internationally renowned architect I. M. Pei commented that if Marcel Breuer's church for Saint John's Abbey had been built in New York instead of the north woods of Minnesota it would be world famous. Hamilton Smith, Breuer's longtime associate, wrote that the completed church was that rare thing, an architectural design fully realized, and he regarded it as Breuer's finest achievement. The junior member of the twelve-monk planning committee recounts in warm and frequently humorous detail how its members related to the Hungarian-born Bauhaus-trained architect who had no background in church architecture but shared their belief in the enduring quality of simple materials sympathetically used. How the strong architect-client relationship survived the strain of disagreement at a critical moment in completion of the church is the narrative high point in this informal record of four years in which the reader sees a masterpiece of modern church architecture take shape. Hilary Donald Thimmesh, OSB, is a native Minnesotan who became a monk of Saint John's Abbey in 1947. He was ordained priest in 1954, gained a doctorate in English from Cornell University in 1963, and taught courses in Chaucer and Shakespeare intermittently with administrative appointments until 2009. He currently heads the Benedictine Institute of Saint John's University.

Here, in words and pictures, is the most exciting architectural story since the building of the great medieval churches in Europe, the grand plan on which a monastic community in Collegeville, Minnesota, and a world-famous architect -Marcel Breuer- have embarked. At the beginning, the Benedictine community of St. John's was considering only the addition of a small brick annex. But as the work progressed, the project evolved into a comprehensive, long-range plan for 19 new buildings. Each new building must be planned for the growth of the community in its several functions: as church, seminary, university, monastery and preparatory school. The Abbot summed up the feeling of the community in his letter to the 12 leading architects who were asked to submit plans for the buildings: "The Benedictine tradition at its best challenges us to think boldly and to cast our ideals in forms which will be valid for centuries to come, shaping them with all the genius of present-day materials and techniques." Functional and artistic success in such a building program depends upon the sensitivity of both patron and architect and the cooperative spirit that is engendered between them. The partnership between the community and Breuer has proved to be as productive as that of any of the great church builders of the Middle Ages. The scope and creativity of Breuer's master 100-year-plan and the spirit of cooperation between him and the monks, who are doing much of the actual labor themselves, have impressed architects all over the world. Hungarian-born Marcel Breuer, who first won recognition for his work with the Bauhaus group in Germany in the 1920's, subsequently taught at the Harvard School of Architecture. He has been practicing in this country and in Europe for 20 years; during this time, his outstanding works have been the church of St. John's Abbey, the UNESCO Building in Paris, the Torrington Manufacturing Plant in Los Angeles and the New Kensington Housing Project in Pittsburgh. A book about his work and ideas, Sun and Shadow, was published last year. -- from dust jacket.

A defining form-giver of the 20th century, Marcel Breuer is a modernist locus classicus. From his landmark tubular furniture to "binuclear" housing, his projects across Europe and the United States are case studies in the balance of texture, color, and form, and the elegant symbiosis of local and global, big and small, rough and smooth.
