Frank Lloyd Write is the most celebrated American architect. He is most known for his Usonian homes and Prairie homes and many famous commercial and industrial works as the Samuel R Guggenheim Museum or the Johnson Wax Building. But I like finding those works of Wright that are less known and are seldom mentioned. The Community Christian Church in Kansas City is one of those.
My daughter travels a lot with her job and is becoming an accomplished photographer. She also has her dad's love of architecture. (Visit her website www.littlec.me) When she travels to a city I will do a little research to find what Frank Lloyd Wright works may be there. This week she was in Kansas City and took time to visit the Community Christian Church.
What I most like about the architecture is Wright's use of white. Both exterior and interior are white. The pulpit area with its trapezoid windows (trapezoid shapes being a distinctive characteristic of Wright's) flood the pulpit with light that creates a magnificent focus.
