Unity Temple: Frank Lloyd Wright and Architecture for Liberal Religion is the first in-depth study of one of the seminal works of America's most renowned twentieth-century architect. Joseph Siry examines Unity Temple in light of Wright's earlier religious architecture, his methods of design, and his innovative construction techniques.

Reviews & endorsements
"Joseph Siry thoroughly explores the many vectors--social, religious, architectural--that converged in Unity Temple, including Wright's far-flung design sources; contemporary reactions to the structure; and its influence upon subsequent architecture. The result is an amply documented, profusely illustrated, and generally well-written and accessible study that should be of interest across a wide disciplinary range." ChoiceSee more reviews
"...Joseph M. Siry has written a detailed, and highly focused monograph on the building addressed-almost exclusively-to a scholarly audience....Siry does a masterful job in exploring the complexities of the commission, and certainly leaves no doubt that many intellectual and social forces were in the air..." David M. Sokol, Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians
"Architectural historian Joseph M. Siry has produced an impressive case study of Frank Llyod Wright's Unity Temple....excellent analysis of Unity Temple as a monumental work by Frank Llyod Wright." Marguerite Carnell Rodney, American Studies International
"...this detailed, readable, and richly illustrated volume is an important and valuable addition to literature on church architecture. It is also a wonderful resource on Wright the man and the architect, different from usual run of the mill resources..." John Bolt, Calvin Theological Journal
