John sends a link for anyone interested in a much longer explanation of this story (with pictures) titled "A Case Statement to Repair The Frank Lloyd Wright Designed Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church" written by Don Meyer of D.P. Meyer, LLC.

Having supervised construction on site from 1959-1961, John feels a lifelong responsibility to this remarkable work of architecture. Reconstructing the dome support band — to prevent collapse of the dome — is just the beginning of needed work. It's John's fervent hope that the whole Wright community will help save this building.
