I'm Greek and I'm a FLW fan. Had to check this out as I've admired it from afar for so long. Unfortunately the church was closed so we only got to see the grounds and the exterior. Checked it off the FLW list.

This Frank Lloyd Wright creation is very unique. The inside is beautiful in a European sort of way. The annual Greek Festival has regretfully moved from the church grounds to the State Fair Park offering extensive parking and peace around the church but limits the public access to tour during the festival.

We took the time to drive out to the Greek Orthodox Church, one of Frank Lloyd Wright's last designs. The exterior is stunning, although it's in a bit of disrepair. According to the website and the on-site signage, tours are only allowed for groups and on very specific schedules. I would have happily paid for a tour of the interior.

Due to vandalism many years ago, the tours through this Frank Lloyd Wright inspired temple have been discontinued. But it's still something to see from the outside.

You can only see this Orthodox church on a Sunday. We were thrilled to attend liturgy in the only Orthodox house of worship designed by FL Wright, the Greek Orthodox Annunciation church in Wauwatosa Wisconsin. Truly it was a transcendent experience. The building looks like a flying saucer, blue and white in Greek colors. Upon entry it becomes clear that... More

We have often driven past, but recently attended a funeral, and were impressed with the interior design as well as the Liturgy. Intimate setting for worship, and Wright truly outdid himself!

You don't have to be Greek Orthodox, or for that matter even just Christian (personnaly I am questioning my participation in both those groups) to appreciate and love the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church of Milwaukee. The genius of FLW paying homage to Aghia Sophia and Byzantine architecture. It is unlike any other FLW building, but yet it is unmistakeable Wright... More

This church is so different from Frank Lloyd Wright's other buildings and is well worth a visit. I was with a group an had a very nice tour by a volunteer who knew a lot about Wright as well as the history of the church. Of special note, FLW also designed the icons for the iconostasis, but a recent pastor... More
