  • What a beautiful structure. One marvels at the mind of its Creator. How I would love to visit this magnificent edifice. The congregation is to be congratulated for choosing the right architect who departed from traditional Byzanitine architecture and yet incorporated much of it in a new and pleasing form. You chose the "right" man to design your Church. May it stand forever as a monument to our Greek Orthodox Faith!
  • The Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1956. Wright died in 1959, two years before the church was completed. On either side of the church are sunken gardens.  It is difficult to believe this was designed and built 50+ years ago - it would appear modern if built today. It is best to contact them concerning tours. Previously there were open tour hours however, this has changed. (Of course you can simply go slightly after a Sunday service.) Unless there has been a change in policy, you cannot take pictures inside the church. The interior is deceptive. What appears so large on the outside is significantly small inside. (It’s the angles.) It is an amazing piece of architecture.
  • This brutalist structure reminds me of the Communist Buzludzha Monument in bulgaria. What were we thinking when we let someone like Frank Lloyd Wright design an Orthodox church?!!? This thing should be demolished. The Greek Orthodox community in Milwaukee really needs a traditional, proper place of worship, that is conducive to Orthodox worship and is not so distracting. If you look a little closer, you'll see the imperfections that most pictures online don't point-out. One thing I would like to say is, Modernist architecture is not only an atrocity, it is more costly to maintain, and its materials don't hold-up against the elements. In the future, the concrete will show visible cracks. Metal reinforcement will be corroding if it isn't already. I really hope this structure doesn't survive to be a century-old. If it does, I'm sure it will reach a point where the congregation has to decide weather to demolish it, or exhaust a significant amount of money to keep it occupyable.
  • Best experience ever !!! I was baptized at this church when I was born in 1952 at the old church on Knapp street in Milwaukee wi. Truly the most beautiful part of my life !!
  • Another Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece. I also had trouble with tour times; but since I was visiting on a Sunday I just attended a service. The only pictures you can take are of the outside of the edifice. It was an experience; and I was led to believe that I was in attendance at a truncated service since there was a church festival to attend. The atmosphere was very communal and intimate; you felt part of a neighborhood.
