American religious pluralism

At an exhibition on Frank Lloyd Wright's anti-urbanist city imaginings at MoMA which features the detailed model of his Broadacre City from the mid-1930s, I discovered this rather unusual geometrical structure today. It's described in the key as: Universal worship, columbarium, cemetery, nine sectarian temples surrounding a central edifice. Is there a distinctively American theory of religion at work here?
