Unity Temple is one of the many works by FLW that could have, had it been his sole accomplishment, immortalized him.

Did not know all this was going on.
This link gives a little detail:

The paint and plaster section I thought was very interesting. Looking forward to revisiting when she's all done.

In the latter part I could hear

"Did you take some samples?"
"Sure. There's some nice pieces over there."

I don't know if they're taking samples for the current restoration or for history. You'd think they'd get all the information they want before dismantling anything. UT has been good about saving relics from its restoration projects.
