The First Unitarian Society of Madison commissioned Wright to design them a suburban church in 1946, actively participating in its construction to keep costs down, even heaving tons of stone from a nearby quarry. They also helped construct furnishings and finish the interior, something which has helped to truly anchor the building in their name. The original single-level building, constructed of limestone, copper, and glass, holds an auditorium, kitchen and social area. There is a unique angular hall, one of the many examples of the triangle shape associated with the building and its furniture, connecting to offices, classrooms, and another social hall.
