Private tour of Unity Temple with Gunny Harboe

  • Unity Temple 875 Lake Street Oak Park, IL 60301 (map)

SOLD OUT! Frank Lloyd Wright referred to his design of Unity Temple as “my contribution to modern architecture.” As one of the first public buildings in the country to feature exposed concrete, and the last surviving building from Wright’s Prairie School period, it is, quite simply, an architectural masterpiece, “embodying the bold elegance, visionary experimentation, and functional integrity that characterize modern architecture.” A meticulous $20 million restoration, completed in 2017, has returned Unity Temple to its appearance as envisioned by Wright, down to the smallest detail. This very special tour will be led by preservation architect Gunny Harboe, who led the restoration effort. Learn all the details that go into restoring a Wright masterpiece!
