Community Christian Church

Rosin Preservation completed the National Register nomination for the Community Christian Church, which is Frank Lloyd Wright’s only public building in Kansas City and one of his only 8 ecclesiastical built works. The Church opened in 1941 and illustrates the evolution of Wright’s design philosophy in his Usonian phase. It was his first public building that used a non-square module. Typical of Wright, it features contrasting low/tight and tall/expansive spaces, a prominent cantilever evocative of the recently completed Falling Water, and a sprayed-on concrete finish for both the exterior and interior.
