oh wow. guess what! The Baha’i House of Worship in Wilmette, Illinois—whose design was the creation of Canadian Baha’i architect Louis Bourgeois, and whose ground was first broken by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá himself—is now officially one of the Seven Wonders of Illinois. Those of you who voted in the contest know how close the race was—time to rejoice (and check out the awesome video)!
Update: Read the news at the US Baha’i website.
