According to Tome Wilson, Wright's goal in Racine was to seal off the interior from the surrounding industrial environment and provide a work space that was, as Wright said, "as inspiring a place to work in as any cathedral ever was in which to worship." Light floods the large interior space from skylights and a clerestory through tubes of Pyrex glass.

It is a lot more impressive in person, although the colors and furniture have not aesthetically held up as well as the structure.
