The plan and roof of the Unitarian Church in Sherwood Hills, Wisconsin are triangular and impart a reverential quality, according to Wright. Wright believed that light and a "geometric type of space" allowed a structure "to achieve the sacred quality particular to worship." This philosophy is carried through the entire design of the church and its contents, evidenced in this table's adherence to pure geometries.
