ORDER OF ST. BENEDICT/ ST. JOHN’S UNIVERSITY
Master Plan
Collegeville, Minnesota

The master plan completed for Saint John’s was an extension of the master plan completed by Marcel Breuer in the 1950s. The goal was to update the plan by Breuer for current and future needs for the four entities that compose Saint John’s: the Benedictine monks of Saint John’s Abbey, Saint John’s University, Saint John’s Prep School and the Liturgical Press.

The plan included concepts of courtyards, cloisters and connecting vistas which create a sense of place that successfully expresses the spirit of Saint John’s and honors the traditions of Benedictine architecture.
