First Unitarian Society Meeting House
This National Historic Landmark is only 10 minutes from Monona Terrace. It was completed in 1951, when Wright was 84 and has been hailed as one of the world’s most innovative examples of church architecture. In addition to the original Usonian-style Meeting House, with its pitched copper roof, deep-red concrete floor and iconic prow of interlacing wood and glass, an addition by William Wesley Peters completing Wright’s original, unfinished design was added in 1964. The LEED-certified Gold, Atrium addition by Kubala Washatko Architects was completed in 2008.
