In September 2009, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Unity Temple will celebrate its centennial—100 years since this Masterpiece on the Prairie was dedicated. Ever since Unity Temple opened its doors, it has been famous, with visitors coming from all over the world to see its ground-breaking design and architecture. The building offers pristine examples of Wright’s understanding of volume and space, light and shadow, and early examples of his use of art glass and electric lighting fixtures. Many architects consider a pilgrimage to Unity Temple to be mandatory. Frank Lloyd Wright himself described Unity Temple as “my contribution to modern architecture.” Unity Temple is open to the public seven days a week, all year round. Hours are Monday-Friday, 10:30 am to 4:30 pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 1:00 to 4:00 pm (closed New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day). Admission is $8/adults and $6/seniors 65+ and youths 22 and under, and children under five are free. Custom tours and lunches are available with advance notice. Unity Temple Restoration Foundation hosts a variety of critically acclaimed cultural and educational programs, including Unity Temple Concert Series and Break the Box, a lecture series. All admission costs contribute to the ongoing campaign to raise $15 million to restore this American treasure. For more information or to arrange custom group tours, call 708-383-8873 or email
