Saarinen's Village - The Concordia Campus Through Time

In 1953, the Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod commissioned the world renowned Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen to design a complete campus for Concordia Senior College. Mr. Saarinen believed that “a village of the North European type” would provide “a quiet, unified environment into which the students could withdraw to find a complete, balanced life and yet one which is related to the outside world.” The result is a campus that first served Concordia Senior College (1957-1977) and now serves Concordia Theological Seminary (1977-present).

This digital collection documents in pictures and text how the campus was built, expanded, and used during the more than fifty years it has served to form pastors, deaconesses, and others for service to God and His church.
