Wright’s World Heritage Collection

A series of eight iconic works by Frank Lloyd Wright are slated for inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage list in July 2019. These works figured prominently in shaping the development and evolution of Modern architecture during the first half of the 20th century and continuing to the present. This talk highlights the history and outstanding universal value of Unity Temple, Robie House, Taliesin, Hollyhock House, Fallingwater, Jacobs I, Taliesin West and the Guggenheim. This lecture is part Justin Gunther’s series, Iconic Architect.
