Benefactors SAVE Wright House from Demolition

Posted on: December 20, 2012

The big news today from the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy:

David Wright House

The deal closed 20 December 2012 on the purchase of the “David Wright” House!

When developers threatened to demolish the property for their building schemes, proponents had already moved to save the house from the wrecking ball. See our earlier post about the battle for the Wright House. News sources will be celebrating as word gets out.

wright1The New York Times has already pipped most other sources to the post. Oh, to have been a fly on the wall during some of those City Council Meetings…

We at – former art students who’ve studied architecture – are cheering the great news (and booing the villains…, who claim not to have known who Wright was).

Phoenix should be happy that some un-disclosed philanthropist stepped forward to save a piece of American history that could never be recovered, once lost.

A miracle, perhaps? In this mercurial atmosphere, it makes a pleasant change. The Conservancy will be seeking help with renovations, once the property is transferred to an “Arizona not-for-profit organization”. Learn more at SAVE WRIGHT.ORG.
