Dezeen Wire: a house in Phoenix, Arizona designed by the influential American architect Frank Lloyd Wright could be bulldozed unless a new buyer is found or the city agrees to grant landmark status to the property.
If no new buyer can be found, the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy hopes to persuade the City of Phoenix to grant the building landmark status, thereby protecting it from demolition for a few vital years. The Conservancy is asking supporters to sign an online petition and write letters to the city's council and planning committees.
If it cannot be saved, the house will be the first Wright building intentionally demolished in nearly 40 years, according to Janet Halstead, executive director of the Conservancy.
The David and Gladys Wright House was designed by Wright for his son and completed in 1952. The house is laid out in the same spiral plan as Wright's iconic Guggenheim Museum in New York.
