This Marcel Breuer brutalist concrete edifice is a surprise find on a Muskegon Street. I was not actually surprised, as I traveled to Muskegon just to see this building. What is surprising is that this famous Jewish architect from Germany’s Bauhaus (who also designed the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York) designed this Catholic Church in Muskegon – and this building is relatively unknown.

I have posted some exterior photographs today, and will update this post with additional information and photos in a day or two. I also made arrangements to photograph the interior, and will post those photos separately.

Check back soon for more.
