Recently an article about a developer who purchased a home Frank Lloyd Wright built for his son in Phoenix, AZ. was soon to be demolished and a new community would arise in its’ place. A lot of people were outraged that an American icon’s work would be demolished rather than restored.
Interestingly, a number of quick-thinking individuals, concerned about saving the house from demolition, formed SavetheFrankLloydWrightHouse.org and started a petition on Change.org. Someone learned of this planned demolition and stepped forward to purchase the house for $2.4 million. The anonymous buyer plans to restore and preserve this historic landmark which is great news for all the Frank Lloyd Wright architecture fans! Many thanks to the benevolent buyer of this 1952 property in Phoenix! My hopes are the house will be restored and shared with the public like my favorite FallingWater in Beaver Falls, PA.
