Breuer’s office began working on the comprehensive plan for Saint John’s Abbey and University Complex in May of 1953. More than a decade later, in 1966, Breuer designed a Campus Center containing a student union and swimming pavilion. Had it been built, the Campus Center would have been bordered by residence halls to the south. Design development drawings show Breuer working through a number of designs for the exterior façade of the student union before settling on a version consisting of vertical bays in which rectangular windows fronted by precast concrete sunshades alternated with brick panels. The two-story building contained a snack bar with a terrace, a billiard room and offices on the lower floor and a kitchen and dining room on the upper floor.
