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. This idea became of central importance to the modern architects who followed Wright, such as Mies Van Der Rohe, and even the post-modernists, such as Frank Gehry.Put Frank Lloyd Wright's Unity Temple at the forefront of your travel plans using our Oak Park online travel route planner.

Unity Temple is an amazing Frank Loyd Wright design right in Oak Park, IL, very convenient to anywhere in Chicago land. It's open for tours and the church of the Unity Temple Unitarian Universalist Congregation, a really welcoming group. It was recently remodeled and a must see piece of architecture.
Frank Lloyd Wright's first public building. More of his organic elements added into this structure. A very good example of form, function, and mixed architectural elements pooled together. Choose the self guided audio tour.
