The Unity Temple is currently undergoing restoration and is completely covered in plastic. Hope to see it on another visit!

Wonderful early work of Frank Lloyd Wright. This was Wright's own church and he introduced many features and designs never seen before. In June 2015, The Unity Temple will be closed to the public for two years to undergo an extensive renovation. See it as...More
