Unity Temple was constructed between 1905 and 1908 and dedicated in September 1909. Unity Temple is one of Wright’s earliest works of genius. Built in Oak Park, Illinois, Wright’s bold, experimental design for Unity Temple used poured-in-place reinforced concrete, a material associated at the time with utilitarian buildings. Because of its intrinsic characteristics of strength and plasticity (the ability to be shaped), concrete enabled Wright to design a building comprised of bold structural forms with integrated ornamentation. Wright also selected a concrete that exposed the aggregate materials from which it was comprised, underscoring concrete itself as a material derived from nature.
This model was produced with the utmost attention to detail. The designers researched architectural drawings and dissected countless photos to capture the true essence of the original building. Materials are selected with the same dedication to quality and sustainably sourced where possible. In short, this model feels like it could have come from the architect's own studio.
Beautifully boxed with clear, easy-to-follow instructions to help unleash your inner architect. Glue not included.
