In a serial nomination, inscribed as “The 20th-Century Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright,” eight major works of the beloved architect join UNESCO’s World Heritage List. This is the first recognition of modern American architecture by the cultural organization. To coordinate the conservation efforts, the Frank Lloyd Wright World Heritage Council has been formed. The designation includes homes designed for clients (including Hollyhock House, Robie House and Fallingwater) as well as public works the Unity Temple and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Two of the architect’s private residences were included, as well: Wisconsin’s Taliesin and Arizona’s Taliesin West. Read more at the New York Times.
