Another Rapson gem to be destroyed

This coming week, another Ralph Rapson design will be destroyed . The small structure, an elegant Miesian box in masonry and glass in St Paul, is the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church for the Deaf (1958) at 205 Otis Avenue, just off of Marshall Avenue at the Eastern edge of the Lake Street bridge (also across from Town and Country Golf Club). A condominium project will be constructed on the site.

If you have not seen this wonderful gem, this week-end is the time to
see it.
