In a Chicago Tribune article published on Thursday, architecture critic Blair Kamin praised the result of Berglund’s two-year restoration project at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Unity Temple.
“Today, Unity Temple is a landmark renewed, an enduring statement of Wright's genius and a vivid reminder that his brilliance extended far beyond the Prairie Style houses for which he is best known,” Kamin wrote. “There can be no better way to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Wright's birth than to see and experience this revived masterpiece.”
Berglund has served as construction manager for the project since spring of 2015, working in partnership with the Harboe Architects team highlighted in the article. Berglund craftsmen performed some of the critical work tasks on the project, including finish carpentry and structural concrete repairs.
The Unitarian Universalist congregation will again host services in the building start June 11, and a formal ribbon-cutting is scheduled for June 17.
