Unity Temple – Frank Lloyd Wright

Unity Temple

Another Chicago FLW hotspot is nearby in Oak Park, an easy road trip stop along the path. The Unity Temple was built in 1908, an American and European styled religious structure in which Frank Lloyd Wright added in signature modern and unique aspects, such as the completely concrete building material used. This spot is 'bold in design, modest in budget, urban in site, and unconventional in materials', also considered to be the only remaining surviving public prairie period building.

Frank Lloyd Wright himself is famously quoted saying

'The Unity Temple makes an entirely new architecture...contributing to modern architecture',

a huge testament to how influential this spot really is in the grand scheme of American architecture. Enjoy an interior tour showing the two sides of the structure (the worship and the gathering sides), exposed concrete features, and even popular low connecting foyer and entry way within.
