Unitarian Meeting House (page 2 of two pages)

Frank Lloyd Wright
1947




The main entrance

At the southeast corner of the building Wright designed an entrance porch with a wide low overhang. Inside, the small triangular lobby has a low ceiling.
 

The entrance porch

The interior lobby provides the unifying motif of the meeting house: a four foot diamond module, with the angles either 60 or 120 degrees.
 

Entrance to the Hearth Room

Opposite the auditorium Wright designed a hearth room, the main feature of which is a huge stone fireplace. Just as the hearth meant "home" in Wright's domestic architecture, here it signifies unity and intimate socializing.
 

The Religious Education Wing

This addition, added in 1964 and designed by Taliesin Associated Architects, is set at a 120 degree angle from the long original wing.
