Nijmegen (G): St. Jozef or Titus Brandsma Gedachteniskerk  (B.J.C. Claase, 1908-1909)

The St. Jozef was founded as a Jesuite church and became, after having been used as a parish church for a long time, a Carmelite church in 2004.  That year the name was changed to Titus Brandsma Gedachteniskerk (Titus Brandsma memorial church).
The church was built in 1908-1909 and was designed by local architect B.J.C. Claase, who was inspired by the late-Romanesque churches of the German Rhineland, a common source of inspiration for church designs in neo-Romanesque style in the Netherlands. Typical features of this variant of neo-Romanesque, which is sometimes referred to as neo-Romanogothic, are the towers flanking the facade, the semi-circular apses of choir and chapels and, most notably, the big polygonal crossing-tower. Standing next to the church is its predecessor, a temporary church designed by N. Molenaar and built in 1888.
