Frank Lloyd Wright was never one to fret about meeting deadlines, sticking to budgets or roofs that leaked. So there is something fitting about the delayed, but altogether triumphant, restoration of Wright’s Unity Temple, the Oak Park landmark that is the finest public building of Wright’s Chicago years and home to one of the most beautiful rooms in America.
The Unity Temple Restoration Foundation will hold an open house at Unity Temple, 875 Lake St. in Oak Park, on June 17 from 2-5 p.m. Visitors will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis with the last group admitted at 4:45 p.m. The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust, a nonprofit dedicated to educating the public about Wright’s legacy, plans tours of the building following the completion of the restoration; more information at http://flwright.org/tours.
