Unity Temple (1905-08) is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the 20th Century Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright List, and represents a defining moment in Frank Lloyd Wright’s early career. Designed in Wright’s Oak Park Studio for his own Unitarian congregation, it is one of the first public buildings in America to feature exposed concrete and is Wright’s greatest public building of his Prairie era. The harmony of the building’s strikingly geometric architecture and decorative elements exemplifies Wright’s theory of organic design. Unity Temple announced a new era of innovation in modern architecture.
This concluded our day at Oak Park and our immersion in all thing FLW. We had an excellent tour where we were the only people so we benefited from our guides undivided attention. Excellent guide who had such knowledge and love for the building. Nothing like I have ever seen before.

A special mix of quartz and white cement was developed for the intricate ornamentation on the nine-sided, domed structure.
An oasis of quiet for prayer and meditation in the temple; friendly volunteer guides, displays, brief videos and a non-pressure bookstore in the Welcome Center.
