While visiting relatives in Wisconsin, we found out that there was a Unitarian Church in Madison and we decided to go see it. The church was beautiful - very great FLW design, both indoors and out - one of the highlights was a HUGE pipe organ which could be viewed from the inside of the church as well as the... More

Frank LLoyd Wright.....another fascinating work of his......wood, stone, windows, angles, light......beauty, and inspiration if you are into architecture and geometry.....and the modern (more recently built) part is worth seeing too.

Frank Lloyd Wright loved being an innovative designer and so it is with this wonderful worship space in Madison, WI. Wright was a member of this church. It was interesting to see the bright red concrete floor reflect in the ceiling design in an array of color. The high wall of windows gives a vista to nature. The central hall... More

This Frank Lloyd Wright building is beautiful. It's inspiring to both Wright's devotees and Unitarians who appreciate the work of a fellow believer.

This is a FLW site that you don't want to miss. It has the typical FLW elements like low and outreaching roofs, triangular auditorium, rooms lit with natural daylight, and the blending of the building with the surrounding. You need to call ahead to go inside, but the exterior view is already breathtaking.

The date above is not accurate, because I tried to visit here when I first moved to Madison, in 1979. I looked in the phone book to find the church and drove over there one day only to find out that they close for the summer! I was amazed that a house of worship would close for the summer! Needless... More

We visited many Frank Lloyd Wright sites on our trip to Chicago and Madison. We even went to Taliesin for a day trip. This tour was excellent. I love the way the new addition fits in with the original structure. I also enjoyed seeing the difference between a Chicago tour (FLW is a god) vs WI tours (FLW was amazing,... More

My mom and I didn't actually go inside because you're supposed to call ahead and make sure there aren't any church happenings, which we didn't. We walked around the outside though and marveled at Frank Lloyd Wright's work.

When my sister and I heard about this Frank Lloyd Wright designed church in Madison, on a FLW pilgrimage, we knew we needed to go. This was close to the college campus and we just stopped by around 4:30 pm to look around. You can arrange a group tour if you plan ahead because they need to be purchased 2... More
