As a member of this congregation, I will add my two cents. There are two church buildings on this site, the famous Frank Lloyd Wright structure with its low-slung copper roof and fascinating interior, and the new LEED-certified meeting house with a green roof . You can take a tour through the old building. Note the many Wright features: walls of local stone, the angular glassed-in front of the building, resembling a ships prow; the large fireplace, the Wright-designed plywood pews (not that comfortable!), the low-ceilinged back of the church with an inscription around the perimeter.
When the congregation outgrew this space, and the building began to show signs of deterioration, the church recently built a second building for daily use. This one is VERY modern. Interior is blonde wood with exposed beams, moveable chairs and an airy feeling of openness. The roof is planted with thousands of sedum plants to absorb solar energy. The heating system is geothermal -- etc. etc. Two contrasting structures that relate to each other in interesting ways.
