Frank Lloyd Wright – Greek Orthodox – Annunciation Church

Frank Lloyd Wright died in 1959 during his most prolific period of design and project commissions.  Projects during his last several years included the Guggenheim Museum in New York City and the Marin County Civic Center.  One of his last designs was of the Greek Orthodox Annunciation Church built in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.  Common to these three projects is the circular design element.

Designed in 1956, construction of the Greek Orthodox Church did not begin until after his death in 1959 and was completed in 1961.

While this shallow, domed design is not as attractive to me personally as most of his earlier work, there are some unique design attributes.
