The World Heritage Committee has officially inscribed “The 20th-Century Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright,” which includes eight major works spanning 50 years of Wright’s career, on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
There are more than 1,000 World Heritage sites worldwide, and the group of Wright sites is now among only 24 sites in the United States. The collection represents the first modern architecture designation in the country on the prestigious list.
Wright, who called Arizona home from 1937 until his death at 91 in 1959, is widely considered to be the greatest American architect of the 20th century.
