Unity Temple - Little Building Co. Model Set
Unity Temple (1905-08, Oak Park, Illinois) represents a defining moment in Frank Lloyd Wright’s early career. Designed in Wright’s Oak Park Studio for his own Unitarian congregation, it is one of the first public buildings in America to feature exposed concrete and is Wright’s greatest public building of his Prairie era. The harmony of the building’s strikingly geometric architecture and decorative elements exemplifies Wright’s theory of organic design. Unity Temple announced a new era of innovation in modern architecture.
This Model: Meticulous details accurately convey the temple’s compact but imposing volumes, from the flat roof and overhanging eaves that cloister the building to the extensive skylights that flood its interior with gentle light. Model kit uses American Cherry to highlight the design details of this unique building. The kit’s precise adherence to the architect’s design ensures your completed model is as stunningly beautiful and iconic as the original.
The Unity Temple kit comes with clear, easy to follow instructions and is the ideal gift for any fan of art, architecture, or Chicago’s history. It’s also a beautiful diversion for you to enjoy. It's a great model to start your collection of model landmarks (or give as a gift) and is appropriate for all model builders. This model can be completed in four to five evenings but will provide years of pleasure.
Kit comes complete with all required parts and clear, easy to follow instructions. All you’ll need to provide is a good quality wood glue, a knife to remove individual parts from their sheets, and a flat work surface to construct the model.
