Eight Frank Lloyd Wright Buildings Added to the UNESCO World Heritage List

The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and news sources are reporting that eight Frank Lloyd Wright buildings across the United States have been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. There are nearly 1,100 World Heritage sites, only 24 of which are in the United States.

Arguably one of America's greatest and most influential architects, FLW created over 1,000 designs. 449 of them were actually constructed. Of those 449 realized Wright-designed structures, there are 380 extant structures but 67 have been demolished. Architectural Record --- selected twelve FLW buildings for its list of 100 most important buildings of the 20th Century, four of which are on the list of buildings added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The properties added to the list are on the National Register of Historic Places and are listed here. The list includes Unity Temple, Frederick C. Robbie House, Taliesin, Hollyhock House (Aline Barnsdall Complex), Fallingwater, Herbert and Katherine Jacobs House, Taliesin West, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
