During its work in Connecticut, RCG&A nominated the Dixwell Avenue Congregational Church of Christ to the National Register. Located in New Haven. The church was part of the city’s extensive urban development program that took place in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The building was designed by the well-known modernist architect John MacLane Johansen.
Constructed with split concrete blocks, the Congregational Church of Christ is known for its Brutalist Style. Through carefully considering building materials, geometry, and proportions, Johansen was able to create a striking example of architecture that expresses sculptural beauty while also complementing its urban setting. The Church was listed on the National Register in 2018.
