We've reported recently on the efforts by Taliesin-trained architect, John U. Ottenheimer, to raise awareness and funds needed to fix the roof at the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Wauwatosa, WI. Many readers may not be familiar with the church, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to post some photos of how unique this building is. PrairieMod pal and professional photographer, Mark Hertzberg, was very generous to let us post some. See a slideshow of images after the jump...
It's a stunning building, to say the least. One last image to share is one from the PrairieMod archive. The photo below shows workmen pouring concrete on the dome roof of Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in October 1960, about a year and a half after Wright's passing.
If you'd like to contribute to the effort to help secure the future of this amazing building, contact:
