Introducing Ben’s Modern Gems: Faith Lutheran Church

The newest architect to join our team, Ben Franceschi, relocated to Grand Rapids from Boston to work with MMA. In traveling around West Michigan he has noticed and appreciated the many "modern gems" here.

He's going to capture and share them here as well as on our new Instagram page, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter pages. Enjoy!
