Frank Lloyd Wright’s Unity Temple is among 10 of the architect’s creations nominated for consideration as a World Heritage site, the U.S. Department of the Interior announced.
The group of structures, nominated by the Interior Department under the title “Key Works of Modern Architecture by Frank Lloyd Wright,” also includes Wright’s Frederick C. Robie House in Chicago, along with other buildings scattered throughout the country.
The Unity Temple Restoration Foundation also announced in a news release today that Unity Temple will undergo a $25 million restoration. The restoration group has launched a capital fundraising campaign for the project.
“Almost half of the $25 million campaign goal has been committed,” Heather Hutchison, UTRF executive director, said in the news release. “The Alphawood Foundation has made a magnanimous gift of $10 million and the Unity Temple Unitarian Universalist Congregation has raised $1.5 million.”
