Interior Tour of Unity Temple
Above the Balconies

Above the balconies is a continuous plane of windows under the projecting roof slab. Wright set the windows right into the concrete to minimize the window framing and to create continuity between the inside and outside. Your eye can move through the windows to the columns outside whose geometric capitals abstract naturalistic leaf forms and repeat the cubic shapes of the building.
