Frank Lloyd Wright's Unity Temple, Oak Park

4.5
#2 of 14 in Things to do in Oak Park
More than 100 years after its dedication, Unity Temple is at a critical crossroads. Water infiltration has caused extensive damage to the concrete structure and interior finishes over the years, and the building urgently requires a multimillion-dollar rescue effort. In 2009, Unity Temple was named to the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.

  • Wonderful restoration! Tours resumed in July '17 & it's great to see the restored space. *IMPORTANT NOTE* A church calls this building home, so it's NEVER open for tours or visitors on Sundays. If you only have time for tours on the weekend, be sure to go on Saturday.
  • Unity Temple is a Unitarian Universalist church in Oak Park, Illinois, and the home of the Unity Temple Unitarian Universalist Congregation. It was designed by the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and built between 1905 and 1908. Unity Temple is considered to be one of Wright's most important structures dating from the first decade of the twentieth century. Because of its consolidation of aesthetic intent and structure through use of a single material, reinforced concrete, Unity Temple is considered by many architects to be the first modern building in the world. Cool place
  • Beautiful, inspiring. The Unity Temple has been bringing humans closer to God and Nature for over 100 years. Run by the Universalist Unitarian Church. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
  • A wonderful FLW experience. We learned a lot about the FLW aesthetic from David, our tour guide. David is a knowlegeable, enthusiastic teacher.
  • The self guided audio tour is completely worth it!!
