Emerson Unitarian Universalist Church At 1900 Bering Dr.


Recommended Posts

If you are familiar with the synagogue for Congregation Emanu El on Sunset Blvd. you can see how a very modestly informed reporter or broker could confuse the work of Mackie and Kamrath with Frank Lloyd Wright. Speaking of looking "Wrightian," there is a Unitarian church on Bering Drive that must have been designed by a avid admirer of FLW.

Yes, Karl Kamrath made sure to show his new Congregation Emanu El building to FLW when Wright was in Houston to accept the Gold Medal from the American Institute of Architects. FLW was very flattered, as he well should have been. He had nothing good to say about the new Shamrock Hotel, though.

Emerson Unitarian Church is also by Mackie and Kamrath, as is the Big Three Industries building.
