This church is one of the last iconic buildings of the great architectural legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright, & it was actually completed after his death. Wright's wife had been raised in the Greek Orthodox culture, & according to legend, he consulted with her about the symbolic forms of the Byzantine architecture, & she advised him to emphasize the cross... 更多
Visited w/family during Door Open Milwaukee. The architecture is beautiful, but definitely recommend a tour if possible to get full explanation of the intricacies of the building. Much of the structure is reminiscent of something from "Lost In Space".
Beautiful Frank Llyod Wright designed church. Very cool interior as well (as with most of the buildings he designed most of the interior as well. Unfortunately tours of the interior are hard to arrange. For individuals, you might try during Open Doors Milwaukee (when we went)

I had visited their VERY Greek Orthodox church service as a teenager (and as an adult) and have found it interesting on many levels.

This building is beautiful and the tours tell the history or the building and the Greek Orthodox religion. Fun and informative- it is gray for families or adults.
My sister lives a few blocks from this church, so we walked over to see it based on recommendations on Trip Advisor. Very glad that we did. The building is beautiful and interesting. Best to come on a Sunday though, because it's not usually open during the week. Tours can be pre-arranged for larger groups, but if you're not part... 更多
