Regarded as one of the World’s greatest Architect of all time and Interior Designer, Frank Lloyd Wright has been known for timeless works that are inspired by the philosophy ‘organic architecture’ and a one of the key-players in Modern Architecture.
His famous works of astounding buildings, sceneries, and structures are now nominated as World Heritage Sites to be included in the UNESCO list. The said buildings have an “outstanding universal value” as posted in the article of Smithsonianmag.
It’s the first time the United States has nominated works of modern architecture and the first time it has nominated a new site since 2013
“They are the most iconic, fully realized and innovative of more than 400 existing works by Frank Lloyd Wright,” the architect’s foundation said in a press release. “Each is a masterwork and together they show varied illustrations of ‘organic architecture’ in their abstraction of form, use of new technologies and masterful integration of space, materials and site.”
